Molly Elizabeth Selleck, 14, of Seminole, passed away on Friday, May 11th. She was a 9th grade student at Osceola Fundamental High School. She will be missed by her family, friends, and community.

Molly had a passion for life, and spread happiness everywhere she went. She loved to dance; a love she shared with her Mom. Molly excelled in ballet, and loved her Florida West Ballet and City Dancers dance families. She performed in many recitals and dance shows and always made her family proud. Dance led to Molly’s interest in the stage, and she was active in chorus and theater class at school, even being selected as one of three students from her middle school to participate in All County Chorus in 8th grade. Molly was a dedicated person. She showed this in her loyalty to the Girl Scout Troop she belonged to since kindergarten. When Girl Scout Cookie season approached she accepted the challenge and this year she was one of the top sellers in her troop! Her favorite cookies were the Savannah Smiles.

Molly was an avid collector of American Girl Dolls and Beanie Boos. She was proud of the collection she managed! She loved to visit theme parks with her family, a passion she shared with her older brother Jacob, who she always looked up to. Busch Gardens, Adventure Island, and Disney were among her favorites. Molly was a much loved member of Anona United Methodist Church. She will be missed and remembered by all.

Molly could best be described as fearless. She did not let anything stop her from trying something new, and going after what she wanted. We can all learn from her fearlessness. She is survived by her parents; Robert and Wendy Selleck, her loving brother; Jacob. Her grandparents, Jim and Gerry Marshall, and Elisabeth Selleck. Uncles Jim Marshall, and Peter Selleck. Aunts Christina Epperson, and Anne-Marie Anderson. First cousins Brett and Brandon Marshall, and Christopher Selleck, as well as many other cousins and friends.

A Celebration of Life will be held in Molly’s honor at 1pm on Friday, May 25th at Anona United Methodist Church, 13233 Indian Rocks Rd, Largo, FL 33774.

I am so sorry for your loss Wendy, Bob, and Jacob! Molly has a beautiful soul and she is your guardian angel now!

I remember at Anona UMC, Molly was fearless, brave, beautiful and kind. Whenever she entered a room, she was the light in the darkness. She is very mature for a 14-year-old. I remember when I would talk to her she had all of these huge dreams and wanted to share her bright smile with everyone. And I will never forget her laugh! When I heard Molly laugh, it was electric — made everyone else put on a smile!

I will miss her A LOT! she is another OFHS Angel!

Rest In Peace, Molly!

We are so deeply sorry for your loss, Wendy and Bob. Molly was such a beautiful, sweet, mature young lady who was so full of life. Layla clung to her so easily each time. She just loved her! Everytime Kyla went into ballet class, I'd think of Molly and what a perfect role model she would be for her to look up to. I just thought she was amazing. Molly was such a joy for anyone to be around. She will be greatly missed by everyone that came into her presence. You all are in our thoughts and prayers each day. We love you.
Love,
Chris, Kelly, Robert, Layla, Kyla, and Caiden
Fly high beautiful sweet angel.

Words couldn't express how sadden we are with Molly's passing. Molly had always been the big, loving sister to my daughter, Eleanor since we first knew her through dancing with Ms Wendy. A sweet, loving girl whom we would always remember & treasure in our hearts.

We met Wendy and Bob and the kids when our boys played baseball together many years ago. Alexa and Molly hit it off right away and they would pal around together while the boys had games and practices. We also spent a few summer together bowling in the same league with the kids. And of course shared many a birthday party together. It was great watching our kids grow up together but then we moved away and lost touch. I ran into Wendy and we reconnected when the girls were in middle school together. And while the girls weren't as close as they once were with their busy schedules in fact they didn't see each other much other than in passing in school. Maybe at a girl scout function. But that didn't change anything for us we still watched each others kids grow and change through the help of social media. Alexa still loved her friend and we have many many fond memories of this sweet girl who was taken unbelievably too soon. I have attached a pic of the girls together at one of the birthday parties years ago. Our hearts are truly broken for you all. We continue to keep you all in our thoughts and prayers. Molly really was an amazing girl who gave so much of herself to everyone around her and she did so with such joy. You both should be so very proud of the beautiful girl your raised for she was so loved by so many.

Our hearts and prayers go out to Molly's family and friends. We did not know her well, but she, Hannah, and my daughter, Alexandria, had periodic sleepovers and developed a close friendship. I'm attaching a photo of their silliness during one of their outings. Molly was such a vivacious and fun-loving person. She will be missed dearly.

Molly was such an amazing friend. She always had the biggest smile and she was always there for you when you needed her the most. I will never forget how we used to always partner up in math class or when no one would walk with me she would on break. Especially when it was character day for homecoming week and no one would dress up with me but she said she would and we rocked being minions that day. She was such a talented person and will always be remembered for amazing she was.

My heart is filled with sadness at the loss of my sweet cousin Molly. Molly was a beautiful person, inside and out. She had such a joyful spirit and touched everyone she knew with her generosity and kindness. I am so lucky to have known her and I will miss her dearly.

I just heard this sad news when dropping Madelyn off at ballet class today. I am so shocked and terribly sorry. Molly was such a joy to see each week and Madelyn absolutely loved her. Madelyn actually was showing me some dance moves last week that Molly taught her during their freeze dance time in class, it was so cute how she looked up to her dancing. She always was so sweet and kind to all the little girls in class, we will always remember her generous and patient attitude towards the girls. Thank you for sharing your sweet daughter with us. Please know of our prayers for you all.

I'm also just now noticing how she and Clare shared the same birthday, July 23. Just another reason for us to remember sweet Molly and pray for her family often.
