Mollie passed away peacefully on January 8, 2007 in Vernon, BC, at the age of 86, with family at her side. She is predeceased by her first husband, Wilfred Small, her second husband, Gerry Van Dorsser, and her son, Keith Small.

A long-time resident of Edmonton, Mollie set
an example for all by making education, health, and the arts a lifelong endeavor. Her activities through the years included the U of Agers (seniors’ gymnastics), tai chi, and acting. The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to the staff of the Polson Multi-Level Unit for their loving care. A celebration of Mollie’s life will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, contributions to the Canadian Diabetes Association will be appreciated.
