Mollie was in my freshman dorm at Vanderbilt and I came to be friends with her through college and then in bits and pieces afterwards in NYC. Her happiness shown bright and as a new college girl, I remember Mollie as always having a plan, a sense of adventure. She was never outwardly mischievous but just curious, darling, and very bright. She felt like she had a secret at all times and just might let you into it to share. She loved intellectual things and I was inspired by her approach to film, art history, Asia, and general world events. Her intelligence stood out along with her kindness and beaming Mollie smile. I cannot remember an unkind nor rude word from her, ever. Bless her and I am praying for your whole family. Erika Huddleston, Class of 2000

To Our Sweet Mollie,
I have so many funny, kind and supportive memories of Mollie as many of us do. She touched everyone's heart she met. I'll never forget when we first became partners at Lilly. I just went out on maternity leave and Mollie was hired. In Mollie style she couldn't wait to come over and bring lunch and gifts. My first day back to work I will never forget, she asked, "How was your vacation?" God Love her! I said if you call no sleep, getting thrown up on and changing diapers every hour it was fabulous!!! My next story was when I was trying to potty train my son and she said to me I do not understand. Just show him the toilet and tell him to go. She sure did make me laugh! But on a serious note she was the best mom in the world. One of her favorite places to go was the Chatham Bars Inn at the Cape in MA. My family met her, Bob, Rob and Mia. Mollie had such a way of enjoying everything and everyone she was with. We were at the cape for 3 days but it felt like we were there there for a lifetime. Her first priority was the kids. What can we do with them, is everyone having fun, lets get ice cream, how about the candy store. She had a way of including every one and just a true heart of gold. Before we left our time together at the Cape she bought us a Christmas Ornament for our tree to remember our vacation together. I will cherish that ornament for the rest of my life! Mollie was such a sweetheart and my family is so blessed to have had her a part of their lives. All our love, Ann Marie, Michael, Sam and Abby O'Toole
