Molly Anne Brown Was Gifted, Unsinkable Girl

A gift was born when Molly Anne Brown entered this world on August 19, 1980. A bright eyed girl with a quick smile, a gentle touch and a calming way, she guided family, friends, animals and anyone who met her, to a special place of peace. Molly loved everyone and everyone loved Molly. She touched each of us in a way that only that person can relate to. She lived in our world for mere moments, yet she will live forever in our hearts.

Molly was born and raised on the Vineyard on the family farm. She was aptly named for the unsinkable Molly Brown. She traveled often but always came home to her roots. She struggled with her education but never lost her resolve. With the support of her extended family she persevered; she had a thirst for knowledge and was pursuing her dream of massage therapy.

A traditional obituary is a list of accomplishments, survivors and facts. Molly wouldn't want one. She hated any fuss. Molly is racing bareback across the heavens - she will live on forever in each of us.

Keep smiling Molly. We love you. God speed.

A celebration of Molly's life will be held on Saturday, April 23 at 1 p.m. at the family's Great Pond Farm off of Meeting House Way in Edgartown.
