Molly Clare Klanica
Molly Clare Klanica, dearest daughter of Mary and Dave Klanica, sister to Benjamin and Patrick (PJ) and caretaker of Rocky, Buster, Socks, Garfield and her beloved Romeo passed away on Wednesday, June 18, 2014, near her home in Freehold.
She will be missed by her beloved grandparents, Paul and Karen Klanica of Freeport, PA; her grandmother, Clara Roberts of Edmonds, WA; and her grandmother, Loraine Chambers of Shoreline, WA. She is survived and missed by her many wonderful uncles, aunts and cousins and friends in many places.
Molly was born on Nov. 3, 2000 in Mt. Vernon, WA. She grew up in a wonderful neighborhood in Sedro-Woolley, WA with loving neighbors and friends. Molly loved the outdoors, picking blueberries in her "mud" boots and talking endlessly to her best friend, the horse next door, "Big, Bad John".
Molly traveled to Angleton, TX where she made special friends on her street, learned to ride her bike and catch tadpoles in a peanut butter jar. Molly next moved to Belle-Chasse, LA where she explored the local swamps and ditches with her brothers and friends catching tree frogs and running from snakes and alligators in the back canal.
Molly next came to Freehold, NJ and lived near the woods of Turkey Swamp Park, a place that was special to her, a place to explore and take comfort in. With her brothers she built forts, had sword fights and played laser tag. Here is where she found her peace.
We love you Molly Cuddles, we will always miss you. Hugs and kisses and snuggles forever.
Mommy and Daddy, Benjamin and PJ
Services will be held at 11 a.m. Wednesday, June 25 at the Faith United Methodist Church, 305 Freeport St., Delmont, PA 15626.
