1927 ~ MARY “MOLLY” McCLEMENTS ~ 2021

Posted: September 23rd, 2021

It is with deep sadness the family of Molly McClements announce her passing on September 20 2021 at the age of 93 years. Her life was devoted to her Christian faith and her family.

Molly was born on December 26 1927, in Coleraine, Northern Ireland. She was the youngest of three children born to Archibald and Mary Hartin. Molly and her siblings all excelled at school. Molly went on to own and operate her own retail business and was respected for her friendly and professional manner. On September 8 1948 she married Robert ‘Bob’ McClements and they had one daughter, Thelma. Molly and Bob enjoyed many visits to Canada to visit their daughter and family in Canada. In 1984, they immigrated to Canada to be close to their family. They enthusiastically embraced their new home in Medicine Hat, Alberta. In 1987 Molly and Bob were delighted to become Canadian citizens and have their two grandsons in attendance. Molly was an avid reader, bird watcher and enjoyed walking the trails in Medicine Hat with five special friends, “The Merry Milers.” Molly was sociable, a great communicator and story teller. She was quick-witted, enjoyed listening to opera, classical and Andre Rieu’s orchestra. She had the flair for the dramatic and loved to entertain. Molly was an active member of St. John’s Presbyterian Church, where many friendships were made. Her grandsons and great grandchildren were her greatest joy. Molly’s memory will live on in their hearts.

Left to cherish her memory, one daughter, Thelma Cowan; son-in-law, Robin Cowan and their two sons and their families; Robert (wife Katie) and their daughters, Trinity and Adara; Brian (wife Rochelle) and their children, Annie and Samuel; nephews, nieces, great nephews and great nieces; and friends here and abroad. Molly was predeceased by her husband (Bob) and soul mate of 51 years (Medicine Hat); sister, Agnes McWilliams; brother-in-law, Harry McWIlliams; and nephew, Daryl McWilliams (all from Ontario). Also predeceased by brother, Archie Hartin and his first wife, Maisie, and his second wife, Kathleen.
