Born in Antigonish, December 28th, 1935, Molly was the eldest child of the late John Francis and Josephine (MacIsaac) MacNeil.

After completing high school, Molly entered St. Martha's School of Nursing, graduating in 1958.  Upon graduation, Molly's independent spirit took her to Lowell, Massachusetts to begin her nursing career which spanned forty - plus years.  While in Lowell, Molly, met her future husband, Colin, and married in Waltham, Ma., on October 17th, 1963.  Molly's nursing career took her and her growing family to Miami, Fl., where she nursed in South Miami Hospital.  After the death of her husband, Molly returned to Nova Scotia and continued her nursing career at St. Martha's Regional Hospital and Guysborough Memorial Hospital.  Molly was a true professional, always putting her patients first. 

Molly loved to cook, entertain, read and garden, but her greatest love was her family.  Molly is survived by sons Mark (Tracey) and their children, James (Ashley), Liam, Colton, and Gracelynn; Ashley (Ray) Keegan and Audrianna; and Colin (who followed in Grandma's footsteps), Central Texas; and Steven (Donna) and their children, Joey and Brandon, Inverness, Fl.; Siblings, Jim, Quispamsis, N.B.; Anne Restoule, Giant's Lake; and Fiona (Rodney) MacLean, Lower South River.
