Constance J. ‘Connie’ Molis

Constance J. "Connie" Molis, 89, lifelong resident of Milford, died on August 5, 2015 at the Community Hospice House in Merri­mack, NH, surrounded by her loving family.

She was born in Milford on July 13, 1926, a daughter of Earle and Marion (Leonard) Randall. She was raised and educated in Milford and gradu­ated from Milford High School Class of 1944. She then went through nurse’s training at Memorial Hospital in Nashua where she re­ceived her RN degree.

Connie was the church secretary at the First Con­gregational Church of Mil­ford for many years. She was an active member of the church choir and the Laura G. Heald Club. She volunteered in many programs, church fairs, and blood drives. Connie loved music: she played the piano throughout her life; she later played the recorder, occasionally ac­companying the church choir.

Her greatest joy came from spending time with her family. She was a lov­ing mother and a devot­ed grandmother. In her younger years, Connie spent many hours knitting and crocheting as well as sewing her own clothes. She also enjoyed camp­ing and traveling with her family. In her later years, Connie loved doing cross­word puzzles as well as playing along with her fa­vorite shows "Jeopardy" and "Wheel of Fortune." She also got great enjoy­ment in laughing along with "America’s Funniest Home Videos".

Connie was prede­ceased by her brother, Leonard "Buddy" Ran­dall of Mont Ver­non, NH, and her former husband of many years, Frank Molis of Milford, NH.

Family members include her daugh­ter, Barbara Molis of Milford, NH; her sons, David Molis and his wife Robin of Amherst, NH and Steven Molis and his wife Holly of Brews­ter, NY and Rand Nelson and his wife Christine of San Diego, Cal; her sister, Cynthia Cox of Milford, NH; seven grandchildren, many nieces and nephews and several cousins.
