I remember Mrs. Mollo's ever-present smile. When i saw her, saw pictures of her, or heard stories about her, this smile was always a major part of who she was. She always went out of her way to make me feel welcome and a valued member of Kirsten's world and for that I am grateful. I am also thankful for her influence on her children and their efforts to make the world better.

We got to know Ann when our son, Dan, married her sister's daughter, Michelle. We were with her at some family gatherings and became aware of her bright, smiling, happy personality. Although we only saw her a few times, we are sure that personality impressed and contributed to the happiness of so many people she met, as it did with us.

She will definitely be missed, not only by her family, but also by those who thought of her, as we did, as a FRIEND.

We express our condolences to her family and hope they will be aware of how her happiness affected so many people in a positive way.

Mrs. Mollo was a fixture in my childhood, as I spent a lot of time at her house with my best friend Kirsten, her eldest child. Mrs. Mollo worked as a nurse, and I vividly remember seeing a plastic eyeball floating in solution on her key ring. That stood out! She explained that she received is as a token of having assisted her first eye surgery.

Never one to spend a lot of time on cooking, Mrs. Mollo relied on crock pot meals and when I had dinner at her house I felt special, because I knew she was working hard—as was Mr. Mollo—to to provide for her family and instill in them good manners, diligence, and faith in God. She made me feel like a daughter when she held me to that same standard and I loved it.

One memory is particularly strong, when Kirsten and I “decorated” cookies with mustard and tried to trick her brother John into eating them. I don’t remember whether he did or not, but I do remember Mrs. Mollo telling us to pick up those cookies and eat them, mustard or not. It was a waste of food, she scolded us. I’m pretty sure Kirsten and I hid the cookies in the garbage or on the “Doogy Dooley” backyard sump where the boys tossed the dog’s poop. Their dogs, Nuska (golden retriever) and Boomer (yellow lab) were frequent playmates of ours and Mrs. Mollo made sure we treated them well.

Overall she demonstrated what a great mother does for her children. Music, faith and good grades were not optional in her house. Her devotion to my best friend Kirsten is and her kids has been unflagging. She made all of us feel loved, and she made me feel safe.

God bless you, Mrs. Mollo. You get to meet God face to face. We will miss you dearly.
