Molly Helene Arnold

We remember Molly with love and respect.

Molly was born on Monday June 8, 1931 in

London England and passed away Sunday

November 10, 2013 at Lakeview Pioneer

Lodge in Wakaw Saskatchewan. Molly

was always proud of her birthplace, her

homeland, and her British heritage.

Molly is survived by her sister Joan (Peter)

Palmer of Turners Hill, West Sussex, England,

and her children Sally and Jane; her sisterin-

law Pat Rumph of Tunbridge Wells, Kent, England and her children Alexander and

Hannah; her special friend Fay Michayluk of Wakaw, SK.; as well as several friends in

Vernon B.C. and Wakaw, SK. Molly was predeceased by her parents Ernest and Caroline

Rumph and her brother Bob Rumph.

Molly was a dear friend to Fay Michayluk and her children Rob and Kathy. Molly and Fay

met 40 years ago while enrolled in the University Diploma course for Hospital and Health

Care Administration at The University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon. Over the years Fay

and Molly visited each other often at their respective homes. Molly enjoyed watching

Rob and Kathy grow up and always took an interest in their lives.

A Registered Nurse trained in England, a midwife, a certified TB nurse and a hospital

administrator, Molly was always proud of her profession and loved being a nurse. In 1973

the ever adventurous Molly immigrated to Canada to be the hospital administrator in the

small southern Saskatchewan community of Coronach. Molly’s nursing career had taken

her many places including all over England and Libya as well as Manitoba, Saskatchewan,

and finally to Vernon BC, where she completed her career at a long term care facility. She

retired in 1996 and continued to reside in Vernon BC.

Molly’s health began to deteriorate in 2011 and on October 1st of that year she decided

to move to Wakaw to be near her dear friend Fay and her family. In May of 2013, as her

health continued to fail, Molly moved to Lakeview Pioneer Lodge in Wakaw where she

spent the remainder of her days.

Molly was blessed with a visit from her sister Joan in June 2013 Joan spent three weeks

with Molly and they enjoyed their time together going for walks outdoors and recalling

family and friends in England.

Many dear friends in and around Vernon BC kept in touch with Molly and phoned, sent

cards and kept her in their thoughts. She had been sad to leave them when she moved

back to Saskatchewan and she mentioned them often.

A Graveside Service will take place Saturday November 16 at 11:00 am at the Wakaw

Town Cemetery. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Marc Blondeau of

Kushneryk Funeral Service, Wakaw, SK, 306-233-4403.
