Mary Molly Hufty

June 8, 1916 - August 4, 2012


Molly was born June 8, 1916 at Perry Siding, BC to Henry and Margaret Nixon. She was the youngest of six children and had an idyllic childhood on the top of the hill at Perrys. During the war Molly owned and operated a dress shop in Slocan BC. After her children were grown she worked at the Hobby Shop, Cutler’s News and the Yarn Barn in Nelson.
Molly was always interested in politics and was a life-long supporter of the NDP. She watched the news many times a day. She lived for the summer when her grandchildren would visit and the whole family would gather, with much laughter, in her back yard.
Molly was predeceased by husbands Bill Dawney (1940) and Charles Hufty (1994), grandsons Steven Propp, Michael Propp and Jeffery Hufty.
She is survived by her children Margaret (known as Mitzi) Hufty, Gay (Larry) Black, Holly (Mike) Colebank, Mike Hufty, and Moira (John) Wainwright; grandchildren Darrell, Kevin, Lonnie, Lorrie, Kevin, Jason, Jennifer, Megan, Justin and Jessica; great grandchildren Jodi, Carly, Liam, Logan, Kaden, Kael, Livia, Jacob, Matthew India, Savannah, and Jaya; and great, great grandson Ryan.

Goodbye, Mom, we love you.
