Molly was one of the sweetest people I have known. We traveled to Mexico together as teenagers. After six weeks being with Molly; she made a distinct impression on me. Always cheerful and bright, quick to pick you up, she was a true gem.
We didn’t see much of each other over the years, but when we did get together, she was still the same loving person, caring more about others than herself. What a gem she was!!

Molly's smile and dedication to everything she did brings fond memories....I knew her in school at Cedar Bayou, sitting close to me in PE, and as a REL Band member. May these fond memories bring comfort to family and friends. She was a great school friend. Class of 1965

You were my friend for 65 years and many of those filled with good times, from our days in brownies/girl scouts to high school- good memories, and one we laughed about the most when in 7th grade it snowed, we rode to your house after school on the bus, the driver afraid to stop told us to jump off into a snow bank"we did", then threw snowballs at the bus! Oh, my dear friend how I and so many others will miss you. Until we meet again.

You were my first friend when I started the 7th grade at Cedar Bayou Junior High. We were in the band together from junior high through Robert E. Lee High School. You were so much fun when we sat together on the bus in our heavy marching band uniforms while traveling to football games. You invited me to your church (Episcopalian) and, because our heads were to be covered when entering the sanctuary, you placed a Kleenex on my head. Then there was Robbie Bennett, you, and me living in Mexico one summer as exchange students. Whatever it was , you learned quickly. Your positive, happy nature shined. I will miss you, my friend, but we will meet again in Heaven.

Love you always,

Worked with Molly when she first came to Chevron throughout her years there. Fond memories of those days so long ago when we were much younger and it seemed so much of the future awaited us. Saddened to see her and so many of our past coworkers coming to an end of this life.
May God lift Molly and each of them up that their spirits may brighten the ever after.

Sending love to your family,

Molly Hix was a hoot to work with. She and the employees at Seabrook strove to put humor in the work day. I loved my time with the Seabrook Post Office. Molly stove to make the days fun.
