Obituary of Mollie Taylor
Mollie Taylor, a Scottish born mother, sister, wife, grandmother, aunt, friend and valued member of the community left her life of 94 years peacefully with family by her side. Mollie, an avid cyclist, was born in Aberdeen Scotland where she was married in 1947 at the age of 20 to rival cycling club member Peter Taylor (d.1999). She sailed the ocean to Canada in 1952 with her 3 year old daughter Denise to reunite with Peter, where they began the life that many were blessed to be a part of. Mollie touched the lives of many, including her 3 daughters, 4 grandchildren (Erin, Graeme, Nikki, Rocco), 5 great grandchildren (Cameron, Alycia, Riley, Cassie, Leah), 3 great great grandchildren (Marissa, Henley, Holden) and several nieces and nephews in Scotland and Canada. She lived a busy life as an active member of her community, while caring for her daughters Denise (Taylor), Patrice (Orr), and Shonah (Enzo Laurenti). A member of the UCW at Central United Church and Welland Liberal Ladies. Mollie enjoyed golfing, curling, swimming and anything involving the outdoors or family. Those that were lucky enough to have known Mollie throughout her life can attest to her quick wit and natural sense of humour right up until the peaceful end. Mollie was not afraid to speak the truth, “what you see is what you get” was what she would always say.
