Mary (Molly) Hufty

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our mother, grandmother, great grandmother, great great grandmother and loving aunt Mary (Molly) Hufty.

Molly was born June 8, 1916 at Perry Siding, BC to Henry and Margaret Nixon. She was the youngest of six children and had an idyllic childhood on the top of the hill at Perrys. During the war Molly owned and operated a dress shop in Slocan BC. After her children were grown she worked at the Hobby Shop, Cutler’s News and the Yarn Barn in Nelson.

Molly was always interested in politics and was a life-long supporter of the NDP. She watched the news many times a day. She lived for the summer when her grandchildren would visit and the whole family would gather, with much laughter, in her back yard.

Molly was predeceased by husbands Bill Dawney (1940) and Charles Hufty (1994), grandsons Steven Propp, Michael Propp and Jeffrey Hufty.

She is survived by her children Margaret (known as Mitzi) Hufty, Gay (Larry) Black, Holly (Mike) Colebank, Mike Hufty, and Moira (John) Wainwright; grandchildren Darrell, Kevin, Lonnie, Lorrie, Kevin, Jason, Jennifer, Megan, Justin and Jessica; great grandchildren Jodi, Carly, Liam, Logan, Kaden, Kael, Livia, Jacob, Matthew, India, Savannah, and Jaya; and great, great grandson Ryan.

A memorial tea will be held on Saturday, August 11, 2012 from 2:00pm – 4:00pm at the Prestige Inn, Nelson. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Amnesty International, 312 Laurier Avenue East, Ottawa, Ontario, K1N 2H9.

Goodbye, Mom, we love you.
