Molly Ann Tow passed away December 26, 2015 in Everett, Washington after a brief illness. Molly was born in Bellingham, WA to Max C and Mary A (Myers) Madsen. She married the love of her life, Thomas J Tow of New Mexico, in 1954. Tom was in the Naval Air Service and they enjoyed travelling throughout the US while adding 3 sons and 1 daughter to their family. After leaving the Navy, Tom's new career moved them to Seattle and Bellingham, WA, then to Colorado Springs, CO before they settled in Everett, WA in 1979. While she liked all the houses they lived in, her favorite was always the house on 13th Street overlooking Bellingham Bay and the Fairhaven district. In every place they lived, Molly made lifelong friendships. They both loved to garden, with Molly tending beautiful flowers and Tom growing the best tomatoes and raspberries in the neighborhood. Molly's other interests included genealogy and collecting. She enjoyed weekday walks with good friends in her neighborhood and her dogs. Tom passed away in 2001 and Molly learned to enjoy living alone. She was independent right up to the end. Molly is survived by her four children Michael, Brian (Donna), Susan and Greg (Carolyn) and her grandson Aaron J Tow. She is also survived by her sister Maxine Reynolds and her twin sister Mary J Parcher, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. She was a great mom and sister and a good friend. She will be sorely missed. Private services will be held prior to interment at Greenacres Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions to the animal welfare organization of your choice.
