November 23, 1952 – December 22, 2018
Salem-Molly Ali passed away peacefully on December 22, 2018, after a long courageous battle and fight against cancer, surrounded by beloved family and friends who will remember her forever as easy to love, and generous beyond measure. She was born November 23, 1952, in San Fernando, Trinidad. She moved to the US around 1979, first living in New York and then settling in Connecticut. Her true love was always her family, a trait she showed early as a child in Trinidad, where she would fight anyone who tried to pick on her siblings. When she grew up, her three boys became her focus, whom she raised with a generous love that became her trademark. She loved each of them completely and uniquely. While being a mother was the central joy of Molly’s life, she was also a dedicated employee outside the home, first at Sears where she met her loyal friend Minda and then 30 years at Millstone, where her career as a Nuclear Site and Access Representative brought her great satisfaction and a circle of lifelong friends. She was a member of Leffingwell Baptist Church and enjoyed her time spent there, whether it was at bible study, Sunday services, or fellowship with other parishioners, who loved and supported Molly in her final days. She also found joy in painting, word searches, cross stitch, and gardening. Throughout her illness, Molly’s positivity and hope never wavered, despite the odds. Her faith and commitment to family carried her through and kept her spirits up, even when the prognosis was less than bright. Molly’s family wishes to thank Dr. Bulgaru and the staff at Eastern Connecticut Hematology and Oncology in Norwich, for their excellent love and care over the last several years. Molly is predeceased by her parents, Samuel and Sarah Arjoon; siblings, David and Daniel; and long-term partner and husband, Russell Luty. She is survived by a large circle of family and friends who cherished her. This includes her siblings, Jean, Gloria, and Brenda; her sons Ryan “Ricky” Khan, Brent Ali and his wife Sarah, with whom she resided until her final days; and Barry Ali, who blessed her with her beautiful grandson Camdyn Ali. She is also survived by her best friend Asha Ramsingh, who was more like a sister; and her nephew, Russell Khan, whom which she shared a special bond and always brought a smile to her face. In her honor and memory, Molly’s family asks that you “find a little love in your heart” and do as she always did: put family first and find ways to brighten the lives of those around you. Family and friends may visit Montville Funeral Home of Church and Allen, 53 Norwich New London Tpke. On Wednesday from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. and on Thursday from 9:30 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. at which time the precession will leave for an 11:00 a.m. service at Leffingwell Baptist Church.

I worked with Molly for 30 years at Millstone. We retired on the same day. She will be remembered for her beautiful smile. Her family was everything to her. Rick, Brent, and Barry she shared so many stories. She was so proud of you. Then her grandson came along and her heart was overjoyed. She had it right...family first and always.

Molly was one of my most favorite moms 1.) Because she has great boys! 2.) She would come grocery shopping at my job when I worked at Shoprite growing up. She would always come to my line and I would make sure she got all her savings otherwise she would let me know real quick! :-) I missed our conversations over the years that would follow. I’ve never seen a woman so gracefully and beautifully, carry the weight of this sickness! I will miss you and my heart is happy to know your in a better place! <3 Josh and the Posey Family!

Molly was such a wonderful person. We worked together for some 30 years. She was always such a giving person, never complaining, even when things were not going well. I always enjoyed visiting Millstone whenever I returned to Conn. She will be greatly missed.

I will remember Molly's positive and caring attitude. When I visited Millstone several years ago, she took time to spend with me at the nearby casino and showed great hospitality. Such a good person and co-worker.

Molly was such a beautiful and caring friend and co-worker. She made “the best” rice. Every time we had a pot luck or she made it for lunch, she always brought me my own container to bring home. She was one of the most thoughtful people, I’ve ever met. My prayers and thoughts are with her family at this sad time.
