Molly was a classmate of mine at Trinity High School in Euless, TX. We were in Mrs. Jurma's Government class together. I also remember that she was easily the prettiest, and nicest girl in the class. Imagine my shock when a dorky guy like me with glasses AND braces was paired up with her for a class project. I felt like I was sitting next to an angel the whole time, and she was very smart, too. To the family of Molly, I am so sorry for your loss, but as a fellow believer in our Lord Jesus Christ, I am so glad to know that we will see her again one day, for all eternity. 1st Cor 15:55-58.

Growing up, Lauren and I were the best of friends. We would have frequent sleepovers at each other's houses, and were the silliest, giggliest little girls that ever could be. I'm sure we created quite a disturbance every time I spent the night at the Courtney house (ha!), but that never stopped Molly from warmly welcoming me into their home every time. She was the sweetest of moms. Even after we grew a little older and the silly sleepovers stopped, it was a joy seeing her more frequently when she started working at Bethesda. I continued to appreciate the warmth and hospitality I felt simply being in her presence. Molly will be greatly missed and her memories greatly cherished. I love you, Courtneys!

In1997, we moved from the South to Maryland. I remember a conversation with Molly about how I couldn’t find any Christian radio stations. A few short days later, I received a package with over 30 CDs of Christian artists from Molly and Robbie! I called her in tears thanking them. Always the givers.
God bless you and minister to your needs until we all join our loved ones “home”.

Love you all!

Molly and I met almost 21 years ago at Glenview Baptist Church as we were in the nursing room together taking care of our baby boys. She was one of my very first friends at the church and was so genuine and inviting, ALWAYS with a smile on her face! We grew our families together attending MOPS, church, camping trips, and carpooling together for many years to Bethesda Christian School. She truly was The kindest person I’ve ever met. But she was also funny! And a lot of fun to hang around, knowing how to make everyone feel special. Man I’m going to miss her! Although I had not spent a lot of time with her lately, I cherish her and the impact her friendship had on my life. And I’ve so enjoyed watching our boys grow up together over the years and cherish the friendship they have cultivated as well. Until we meet again, Molly....heaven definitely gained an angel!

Courtney family - I knew Molly two years and she had a big impact on my life in a time of transition. Without Molly I don’t know how my daughter Ashley and I would have adjusted to Bethesda. She was always there to answer questions and reassure us. Also, she knew I did not know anyone - and invited me to Keno. I now have a wonderful group of friends due to her thoughtful and friendship. ❤️

Molly was just the most gentle soul. I never heard her say an unkind word about anyone, even when I knew she had good reason to. She truly exemplified Christ in her love for others. And she had the greatest smile! I took a couple of pictures of Molly at a ladies retreat we did about 10 years ago and this is how I'll always remember Molly.

I have been trying to think of a memory to share. I am having a problem picking. I can’t think of a time when I did not know Molly. We met in the nursery at FBC and starting in about 2nd grade the 3 amigos became inseparable (Liz Lee, Molly, and Beth). The 3 of us (and later we added many more friends) had a very charmed childhood. Barbie doll soap operas, month long Monopoly games, backyard zip lining, sleep overs, Campfire Girls, Band, church youth group, choir tours and so much more!

If I have to pick just one memory, making pillowcase man costumes and waddling around the neighborhood with these pillowcases with faces on them over our heads tucked into our pants at our knees would be up there. (Mark waited up the tree at the Maxwell’s house to jump down and scare us!!!)

Molly and I attended Trinity High School together. She was one of the most kind, warm young ladies I had the privilege of knowing. Molly had a beautiful, loving smile. No matter what was happening, if I saw Molly, and she smiled at me, I felt loved. In high school, that is profoundly special. She loved Jesus and you could see it in her smile. She had a peace about her that would draw you in and make you feel comfortable. She had a warmth that I believe was from her knowing Christ as her savior. I can’t wait to see her again. I know she is sitting at the feet of Jesus, with that gorgeous smile.

Molly and I meet about 20 years ago. I was invited to a Mary Kay party through a mutual friend. I wasn’t able to attend so Molly invited me over to her house to have a one on one Mary Kay make over. We became fast friends. Even when I moved back to Minnesota for a few years we still remained close. We talked often. When we moved back to TX, Molly and I became even closer. Molly even hosted a baby shower for me when I was pregnant with Evelyn. I know it comes as no surprise that when I went through some health issues Molly was there for me. She even watched Lily for me when I went to some dr appointments. Molly and I went to Keno together for a few years. We had regular lunches and talked and texted often. Molly was such a gift to me. She always listened to me and mentored me. I love her dearly! Truly I am the woman I am, the mother I am and the wife I am, because of her. She encouraged me to join MOPS when Evelyn was born. It is hard for me to put into words the profound impact Molly’s friendship has had on me. I will be forever grateful that the Lord saw fit to have her in my life!

Molly and I met over 20 years ago when Tim and I moved to Ft . Worth, TX from VA. at Glenview Baptist Church.
Our families became friends and we co-taught a couples class with our husbands Robbie and Tim at Glenview Baptist Church.

So many specials memories it is hard to know what to share..I remember a phone call from Molly that she was so excited they were expecting 2nd baby .
Another memory of a fun make-up night ..when she needed someone to “practice “ with when she started selling Mary Kay.
You also shared how much Lauren loved DBU. ( Both are sons are both attending that great school currently. )
The list goes on and on.
You touched so many people Molly with your caring, tender spirit you showed kindness to all around you. Your smile was contagious and you loved Jesus most of all. ❤️
Until Heaven, Julie Dunleavy
