Molly entered this world a month early on September 19, 1990 as a wee sparkle and emerged to spread her brilliant light with everyone she met.
As a young girl she was a lover of animals and all adventures, large and small. She excelled in all sports—gymnastics, soccer and basketball and began her journey as an equestrian at the tender age of five. She was a wise soul who befriended all and was a kind and generous spirit, careful to preserve the feelings of others.
As she grew, so did her love for outdoor adventures. She “shredded” the mountains and took every opportunity to hike, camp, paddle board and test her physical limits…many times with her 7-pound Yorkie, Payton, in tow. No matter what active opportunity presented itself, Molly was “all in” and embraced it with excitement and enthusiasm.
As a young adult, Molly was bit by the travel bug and, in true Molly fashion, made lifelong friends in Alaska, Costa Rica, Central America, the Florida Keys, Asheville, North Carolina and Leavenworth, as well as in Bothell, Mill Creek and Everett where she resided. No matter where she landed, she touched others with her beautiful smile, infectious laughter, kind and thoughtful words, positive outlook, and zest for life.
She was taken from us far too soon..in true Molly fashion, while on a spontaneous evening outdoor adventure under the stars on March 31, 2019.
To say she will be missed is an enormous understatement. There is simply no explanation of such a senseless loss. But, rather than cry tears of sadness, Molly “GoLightly” would want you to live your life with passion, savor every opportunity, love others unconditionally and hold friends and family close—just as she did.
