Mollie Needham of Trillium Court, Kincardine, died May 10 after a good life, full of joy and fun. She was 88. Born Mollie Evans in Shirebrook, England, to Bill and Edith, on Nov. 9, 1927. She married Albert Needham (died in 1998) and emigrated to Canada in 1950 where they raised three children in Toronto: Keith (Bernie), Lorraine (Neil Wood) and Suzanne Hotson. In 1985, Mollie and Albert retired in Kincardine where she became an accomplished painter, leaving behind many artistic endeavours for all to enjoy. Mollie was a cheerful and loving grandmother to Mackenzie Osborne (Kincardine), and Nevin and Molly Hotson (Ottawa). A bon vivant, Mollie enjoyed traveling and friendship with all those she knew, often making friends with people from all around the globe, sharing letters and friendship long after the holiday had passed. A vibrant  member of the morning coffee club, the afternoon lunch club and the Red Hat Society, she enjoyed many laughs and stories with loving friends. She will be remembered as  a loving soul who embraced life, bringing joy to all those who knew her, always looking for the good in everyone. Her final years were spent at Trillium Court where staff embraced her as their family. We are forever grateful for the kindness and love that Mollie received and for the compassion that staff shared with her family during her final days. A special thank you to Joyce Neyvatte who provided friendship and palliative care in Mollie’s final week, tirelessly spending every night with her so she would have company around the clock. We invite friends to a Celebration of Life, Saturday, May 21, at 10 a.m., at Trillium Court, 550 Phillip Place, Kincardine. Please join us in remembering Mollie’s joyful life.
