She will be greatly missed by her son, Melvin Wallace, daughter, Jackie Krasky, both of West Lafayette; and her grandchildren, Angela Wright, Stephanie Wallace, Brian (Stephanie) Krasky, and Carrie (Jason) Brock; great-grandchildren, Tyler Wright, Kaden, Rilynn and Parker Brock, and Jacob and Gatlin Krasky; sister, Lillian Haning; brothers, William and Wayne Howell; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Per Molly’s wishes, a cremation will take place and a graveside memorial service will be held in Fairfield Cemetery, West Lafyette at a later date. The family extends special thanks to the entire staff of The Oaks at Bethesda Zanesville, the Genesis Hospice Care Zanesville, and her special friend and neighbor Cheryl (Larry) Rehard.
