Molly (Maureen Anne) Halton


Molly Halton (Maureen Anne) passed away at her home in Duncan, Thursday morning, April?22, after a 2 year battle with cancer. She was just 52. Molly was a loving person full of laughter, and she was a powerful force for all the people in her life including her family and friends, her students and many of their parents, her educational colleagues, and the people she encountered in her community.

Molly emigrated from England 28 years ago; she spent a short time in Windsor before moving to Port McNeill for 6 years. There, she started her family, and then they have all lived happily in Duncan since 1983. Molly has taught and worked in Lake Cowichan for most of that time.

Molly is survived by her 2 sisters, Allyson and Angela, her husband, Richard, her daughter, Lindsey, her son and his family, Aaron, Maegan, Willow, and Asa, as well as her 2 cats, Rufus, and “O.N.”. Molly is well loved, and she will be missed by many.

The family wishes to express our high regard for the quality care offered to Molly at the Cancer Centers in Vancouver and Victoria, and in Vancouver General, Victoria General, Royal Jubilee, and Cowichan District hospitals. Medical care, home support and nursing have been great, and they allowed Molly to comfortably return home again for the last month and a half. A particular thanks goes to Dr Candice Cole and the doctors at the Festubert Clinic for all their support and guidance at this difficult time.

A Memorial Service has been scheduled for 1:30 pm, Saturday, May 8, at Brentwood College in Mill Bay. Contributions to the Canadian Cancer Society to further Molly’s struggle against this loathsome disease are welcomed.

“Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather?to skid in sideways, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming ‘Wow – what a ride!’”
