Molly M. Sack was born on December 23, 1924, in Ft. Lupton, Colorado. Her parents were Kathrine (Bathauer) and Adam Bellender. She was the third of ten siblings.
Molly married the love of her life Casper Sack, on January 9, 1945, at St. Augustine Catholic Church in Brighton, Colorado. They lived on a farm near Brighton, where they raised four daughters, Carolyn, Linda, Beverly and Janette. Casper and Molly were married nearly 60 years before Casper's passing in 2004. Molly moved to Brighton after the sale of the farm.
Molly's love of her family and her home kept her very busy. Her family was her joy. She took pride in raising her girls, working alongside Casper on the farm, keeping a spotless home, and growing a colorful flower garden. Her worn down garden hoe was a testament to the hours she spent weeding her garden. Molly had many friends and family sit around her kitchen table through the years, enjoying the rewards of the tantalizing smells coming from her kitchen. Her delicious pies, cakes and German foods were always requested favorites.
Anyone who knew Molly, knew she had a beautiful singing voice. Her daughters often woke to their mother's singing. If she wasn't singing she was humming and yodeling. Whether in the house or outside, her voice filled the air sharing her beautiful gift with all who were near. She was still singing her favorite songs up until the last weeks of her life. One song that always drew others to sing along was God Bless America.
Molly was creative, artistic and displayed many talents. She painted milk cans in beautiful colors and gave them to many family members and friends. Molly embroidered and cross stitched many pictures hung in her home. She crocheted several delicate doilies. Her passion for sewing continued from childhood through recent months. Molly's sewing talents created costumes, doll clothes and projects for her girls and grandchildren. She made many clothes for her daughters and herself. The last several years, she sewed beautiful blouses that she proudly wore with earrings to match each one. She was complimented often on how beautiful she was.
Molly's love of Casper and her family was an inspired example to all who knew her. She was a strong presence in her family and always had a giving heart, lending a generous hand to many. There was a fun, spirited side of Molly that shined through her bright blue eyes. Her cheerfulness and laughter were heartwarming, revealing her sense of humor which was quite entertaining. Molly's Catholic faith, praying the rosary, and honoring the Blessed Virgin Mary were an important part of her life.
