Mollie CHESHIRE

• MOLLIE CHESHIRE •

CHESHIRE (nee Davidson) Mollie, of Uplands Village, Nanaimo, BC, born in Jedburgh, Scotland on August 22, 1920, passed away peacefully in her sleep on January 18, 2007. Mollie is survived by her  husband of 62 years; Charles, her 91year old brother, Charles (Nora) Davidson, of San Leandro, CA;  son Brian (Louise), in Grande Prairie, AB.; daughter Diane (Ken) Haug, in Sherwood Park, AB.; son Christopher (Lynn), in  Nanaimo, BC; and daughter Margaret (Gary) Sinclair, in Kelowna, BC. She is loved by fifteen grandchildren, Raymond (Candace) Robichaud, Yvonne Robichaud (deceased), Clayton  Charles, Kenny (LeeAnne) Haug, Alexander Cheshire, Candice (David) Pedersen, Marc Beaudin, Eric (Jennifer) Cheshire, Parker Sinclair, and Alison Sinclair. There are also nine great grandchildren to carry on her love, Chantelle Meek, Kaje Haug, Cameron Haug, Daniel Campbell, Tayla Lauman, River Robichaud, Kailana Pedersen, Elise Pedersen and newborn Brendyn Cheshire.

“Aunt Mollie” is dearly loved and will be missed by her brother-in-law, Walter Cheshire, her nieces and nephews, Maureen (Ed.) Applin, Grant (Linda) Herbert, Marilyn (Peter) Dobson, Rick (Jean) Herbert, Garth (Catherine) Herbert, Lynne (Walter) Prechette, Lee (Susan) Chesire, Kim (Pat) Boyle, and all of their children and grandchildren.       

Mollie also loved, and was loved by a myriad of friends throughout Canada, and in Japan, Australia, United States, Scotland, England, Africa, Switzerland, and doubtless other lands that have been overlooked.

A celebration of Mollie’s life is to be held at St. Philip’s-by-the-Sea, Lantzville (Nanaimo) at 2:00 pm, February 24, 2007. In lieu of flowers a donation to Loaves and Fishes (or whatever your local Food Bank is called), is suggested.

Mollie and Charlie agreed, years ago, that they wanted their ashes to be scattered, together, on Nanoose Bay, in front of their idyllic home from 1987 to 2006. (Sorry Mollie, you’ll have to wait again for Charlie, as  you did during your engagement, through W.W.II.)
