“A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands now rest.
We shed many tears in knowing that God only takes the best.”
On December 19, 2018, at the glorious age of 93 years, Molly Anita Morency (nee: Fumagalli), was called to be with the Lord while surrounded by her loving family.
Born on June 21, 1925 in Hillcrest Mines, Alberta to parents, Rinaldo & Anita Fumagalli, Molly was raised with a great respect for family, faith and community. As she blossomed into a lovely and graceful young lady, she won the heart of a dashing young Air Force officer, Harold Morency, and they pledged their love in holy matrimony on August 4, 1954. They were further blessed with five children.
Molly had many passions in life including her dedication to the church, assisting the Girl Guides of Canada and devoting her time to a multitude of volunteer groups within the community. She enjoyed reading, gardening, sewing, treasure hunting at garage sales, driving friends and family around town, and most especially time spent with her family; her chocolate chip cookies and chicken noodle soup will be dearly missed as will the lunches for her hard-working boys. She was proud of her children for maintaining the family business, Morency Plumbing and Heating Ltd., in one way or another and of the loving people they grew to be. In keeping with her generous and selfless character, she would wish us all to be happy and to take care of ourselves. May she rest in peace in the love of Christ.
She is survived by her children, Anna Colmo, Donna (Robert) Parkins, Carrie Morency, Scott (Leanne) Morency and Mark (Lori) Morency, all of the Crowsnest Pass; her grandchildren, Erika (Josh) Chambers, Kayla (Jeff) Strandquist, Todd Parkins, Meagan (Jesse McKenna) Morency, Kaitlyn Morency, Graysen Morency and Dawson Morency; her great grandchildren, Molly Chambers, Gordon Chambers and Harlyn Strandquist; numerous nieces and nephews, extended family and friends. She was predeceased by her husband, Harold Morency; her parents, Rinaldo & Anita Fumagalli; her siblings, Tony and Ricca; and her son-in-law, Bruno Colmo.
With respect for Molly’s wishes, a private family service was held in the Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Church with interment to follow in St. Anne’s Cemetery in the family section. Fr. Angelo D’Costa was Celebrant.
