Mollie Tibbetts

Brooklyn - Mass of the Resurrection for Mollie Tibbetts, age 20 of Brooklyn, will be held at 2:00 PM on Sunday, August 26, 2018 in the gymnasium of the BGM High School in Brooklyn with Bishop Thomas R. Zinkula presiding and Fr. Corey Close as the Homilist. The family will receive friends following the service for a reception and continued fellowship.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be designated to the University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital, mailed in care of the Smith Funeral Home, PO Box 368, Grinnell, Iowa 50112. Memories and condolences may be shared with Mollie's family online at www.smithfh.com.

Mollie Cecelia Tibbetts was born the daughter of Robert and Laura (Calderwood) Tibbetts on May 8, 1998 in San Francisco, California. She was raised in San Francisco and Brooklyn, Iowa respectively and graduated from BGM High School in Brooklyn with the class of 2017. She attended the University of Iowa in Iowa City, Iowa and was majoring in psychology.

Mollie loved life. Her passion for it radiated from those beautiful brown eyes and the smile that she was so quick to share with everyone she met. She excelled in writing and speech where she shared her thoughts on some very difficult and complex subjects, mental health and self-esteem. Her talents were rewarded when she was invited to perform them three years at the Iowa All State competition. From her first musical appearance, she was hooked on theatre and enjoyed acting in the school plays. Mollie pushed herself in cross country and made running a part of her everyday life. Children are also something Mollie loved dearly. She began babysitting at an early age and worked the last two summers at the GRMC Day Camp where the kids adored her ability to make them laugh and the way she made them feel love. She was attending the University of Iowa to become a child psychologist to be able to work with children dealing with mental health issues. Dance Marathon, choir and singing were things she also loved participating in. But what Mollie did best was making friends everywhere she went.

Mollie is survived by her father, Robert Tibbetts of Lafayette and Fresno, California; her mother, Laura Calderwood of Brooklyn, Iowa; two brothers Jacob and Scott Tibbetts of Brooklyn; maternal grandparent, Judy Calderwood of Brooklyn. Maternal family includes her Aunt Kim Calderwood and Chris Sellers of Brooklyn, Uncle Erick Calderwood and Billie Jo Calderwood of Brooklyn, and Aunt Deb Column-Calderwood of Washington DC. Maternal cousins of Brooklyn include Morgan and Christian Calderwood and Vaughn and Joseph Irlbeck. Also included are Kelsie Sheets of Oskaloosa, IA and Kiegan Watts of Altoona, IA, Gabe Sellers of Rochester, MN and Sammie Sellers of Des Moines. Paternal aunts include Meg Tibbetts Williams of Des Moines, Iowa, Julie Tibbetts Eaton and Jeff Eaton of Denver, CO., Clare Tibbetts Faulkner and Matthew Faulkner of Long Beach, CA, and Laurie Craig of Des Moines. Paternal nieces and nephews along with families include Shaun Williams of Des Moines, Nicole and Ryan Mikluscak and children Lily and Maeve of Omaha, NE., Jonathan and Brittany Eaton of Denver along with sons Patrick and William, Annie and Brian Wagner along with daughter Margot Maeve of Ann Arbor, MI., Joseph Faulkner of Brooklyn, NY, and Emma Faulkner of Denver Colorado, Emily and Tim Heaston and family Clare, Cate and Teddie, along with Jack Craig, all of Des Moines. Also included are very much-loved step-mother, Kasey Auston-Tibbetts and her children Mallory and Scott along with grandchildren Zackeria Lovick and Pierce Carlson along with their extended family members. Most importantly, Mollie is survived by the love of her life, Dalton Jack and his family.

Mollie was preceded in death by her maternal grandfather, Charles Calderwood; and paternal grandparents, Robert Tibbetts and Clare Meng Tibbetts.

It has been 3 years Mollie since that terrible day. I don't think of you every day but i think of you very often. There are so very many people who still grieve over the loss of you. Many, maybe most are like me in that they never knew you personally. But we remember your face from the media; the photos and short videos. Because of these, everyone could see that you were a real person and not just a name. I think that's where part of the heart ache comes from. I think that most of us need to take comfort in that you are with God now and that one day, he will raise you again. RIP 'til then. A Dad.

Hearing about Mollies passing I was heartbroken. Mollies story touched me deeply. I have shed many a tear, which i have never done for someone I have never met. That may sound strange, but it was such a heartbreaking tragedy. From reading, Mollie was blessed with a loving family and many great friends. I am a stranger in a different country, but I just wanted to pay my respects to Mollies memory.
Thinking of Mollies family and friends, take care of each other.
Kindest regards,

To the family of Mollie Tibbetts, her friends, and boyfriend, Dalton. I am one of many, that never knew or met Mollie, face to face. But, from the first time I heard of her disappearance, she has held my heart with great affection. Every morning, I would pray for her safe return home.I would check on-line for all the updates,too. So, when I received that phone call from my husband that they found Mollie's body, I fell to my knees (in Walmart)and cried.And, I've never met her. So, I cannot even begin to think what y'all are going through. I am grieving for your loss of such a beautiful young lady. Seriously, the last time I grieved and felt such a deep loss of someone that I did not know was "Lady Diana". Mollie, like Princess Diana, holds the hearts of the American people.Just like Lady Di. We have got to know her through pictures, videos, interviews from loved ones. Sweet Mollie will be missed. And, as a runner myself, I will be thinking of Mollie every race and run I do. Praying for the Lord to heal your hearts and bring you through this difficult time. We will never forget Mollie, and how she has impacted our lives.<3

My heartfelt sympathy to the Tibbetts family. I have been following your story since it broke, and I'm so saddened that it didn't have the ending we were all hoping for. I didn't know Mollie, but it definitely feels like I did. Seeing the pictures and video clips of her is heartbreaking. The images of Mollie will remain with me permanently.
Your story has had a profound impact on me. A beautiful, vibrant young lady was taken away much too soon. I will always remember Mollie and your family - you will always be in my thoughts.

Blessings to all. I have prayed for Mollie ever since I heard her story. I prayed as a mother of 3 and grandmother of 3. We started prayer chains to assist Mollie and her loved ones. We continue to pray for the family support in the coming days. The story of Mollie Tibbets' life, faith and passion has compelled me to strive to be a better person at the age of 54. I pray that we all can be more like Mollie. Her legacy lives in my heart. May the peace of God which surpasses all understanding keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

To all of Mollie Tibbett's family, Dalton Jack and his family and Mollie's many friends, i pray to God to bless all of your hearts and to help each of you to find peace.

I don't have the right words but I have a lot to say that I must say. I hope this is the right place for it.

I have read through all of the messages here and I realize I may not have anything more to add to the loving and beautiful words that have already been said. But I am inspired by these words; some of them literally from the other side of the world.

Like many here, I did not know Mollie or any of her family. I think I picked up on Mollie's story a few days after it developed in July. Upon hearing of her circumstances and seeing her photo on TV, I think I was immediately smitten with her. That smile. And those eyes. Full of genuine joy. I guess they truly are the windows to the soul.

Hearing/watching the interviews of Mr. Tibbetts, Mollie's mom, Dalton Jack and others were always words of hope for Mollie's safe return. That gave me hope. Then when that did not happen, my hope turned to anger; almost rage. Then I began to grieve and I grieve at this very moment. I don't know when that will end. I have not slept well since that day.

I am a dad (2 sons) and a Granddad (3 beautiful Grandchildren). I am retired and trying to live for them and my wife now. But up to that sad day, August 21st, i had prayed the best that I knew how for Mollie's safe return. Even though i love my family, I had also tried to make a deal with God to let me take Mollie's place if it was not his plan to let her come back to her family. I felt that I had lived my years and that she had so many more to give. But I guess it does not work that way. God got the better deal. We almost had a daughter. I can only hope she would have been even a fraction like Mollie.

There is tragic loss of life every day. I am saddened by those events as well at the loss of innocent life. But this young woman, Mollie Tibbetts, IS contagious. It seems that so many people feel connected with her in a way that they can't explain. It seems the entire country and maybe much of the world has sort of adopted her. Again, the photos and then the short videos literally brought her to life for those of us who never got to meet her and hear her speak. And I have to say that after August 21st, I still wanted to read about her on-line but then again I didn't because I knew once I typed in her name to search and her photos came up, I would begin to cry. Just as I am now. I have lost loved ones; grandparents, parents, uncles, aunts, etc and have never been effected the way I am about Mollie Tibbetts.

My faith is not strong. But i do believe that God is everywhere and Jesus is right beside him. I believe in miracles. All I have to do is to see a new born baby. I can't explain this either but Mollie Tibbetts is a special miracle. I do believe that we are supposed to leave this physical world in a better condition than when we entered it. From what I have seen on TV, read on-line about Mollie and the special words spoken by Mr. Tibbetts and other family at Mollie's eulogy yesterday, Mollie definitely left her mark on this world. She touched so many lives and hearts in her 20 years. She obviously has some very special people in her life. I hope to meet her one day.

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

The entire Still family is sending love your way. Our hearts are broken. - Erin Still

In order for those who have been left behind to carry her memory and the meaning which she gave to life....forward...you will need to have the capacity to love without measure, to accept with open arms, to be empathetic to others.

What a lovely obituary. Please accept my sincere condolences. I worried so about Mollie, prayed for her safe return, and checked morning, noon, and night for updates on the search for her. I'm mourning too. May God's grace comfort and strengthen Mollie's many loved ones.
