Molly Grace Shupe
November 23, 2010 - May 21, 2016
Molly Grace Shupe was called home on May 21, 2016, following a 3-year dance with childhood leukemia. She fought hard, and put on such a brave face one would hardly know she was suffering.
Molly’s life seemed so short, and yet the quality of her existence far exceeds the quantity of days she had on this earth. She was quick to love and made fast friends with any who made the slightest effort to show her kindness. She lived for routine and was diligent in making sure the rules were followed and promises were kept. She had an expert imagination, with dreams that could rival the best. She often surprised us with how clear and precise her memory was.
She is survived by her daddy, James; mommy, Leisel; big sister, Annie; little brother, Jack; and her grandparents, many aunts and uncles, and a cousin. She was preceded in death by her paternal great-grandparents James Lennis and Drue Wilson Chambers of Trenton, Utah, great-aunt Alice Susan Olcott of Mesquite, Nevada; maternal great-grandfather Earl Henry Moser of Willcox, Arizona; great-uncle Craig Timothy of Phoenix, Arizona; maternal great-grandmother Helen Ann ”Nana” Lewis of Pocatello, Idaho, and first cousin once-removed Mia Catherine McClellan of Nampa, Idaho.
We believe that families are forever. Molly is welcomed home by her loved ones in the next place, and will be reunited with her earthly family in the future.
A viewing will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, May 26th at the Lindquist Mortuary, 3408 Washington Blvd in Ogden, where the family will receive condolences. A small intimate graveside service for immediate family will be held the next morning.
A celebration of Molly’s life will be held on November 19, 2016, with details to follow at mollyscancerblog.blogspot.com and facebook.com/mollysurvivesthrives.
