Mollie Joyce Beier passed away Tuesday, January 14, 2014, at Parkcliffe Alzheimer's Community at Northwood.
Born October 3, 1932, and raised in Norwich, England, Mollie met her husband, David, while he served in the U.S. Air Force
. At the age of 21, Mollie, along with her 10 month old son, Mark, left her family in England and sailed to the U.S., where she was later joined by her husband, after completing his tour of duty. Mollie and her husband lived in Sandusky, Ohio from 1953-1973, raising three children. She worked at the Erie County Sheriff's Department and later at the Scott
Paper Company. The family
then moved to Woodhaven,
Michigan after her husband, David, was promoted to the UAW Solidarity House in
Detroit in 1973. Upon
retirement, Mollie and David
migrated to Stuart, Florida, where she lived until 2012. Mollie loved to golf and also enjoyed traveling. In her later years, Mollie's passion was raising her two West Highland Terriers, Misty and Robbie. She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and a great friend to those who were close to her.
She was preceded in death by her husband, David, in 1994 and is survived by two sons, Mark (Debra), John (Michelle) and a daughter, Debra. She also is survived by five grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
The family would like to thank the entire staff at Parkcliffe Alzheimer's Community at Northwood and Gentiva Hospice for Mollie's excellent care. A private
service will be held at the Oakland Cemetery Chapel in Sandusky, Ohio. Those planning an expression of sympathy are asked to consider a donation in memory of Mollie to the Toledo Humane Society toledoareahumanesociety.org
