Molly Faith Hathaway

January 21, 2009 — April 25, 2022

Molly F. Hathaway, 13, passed away peacefully in her home on April 25, 2022, surrounded by her family. Molly was a sixth grader at Reiffton School and attended NorthStar United Methodist Church, Exeter Township. Molly had a very special gift for bringing out the best in people. She never spoke a word, but somehow changed the world. She taught so many people about compassion, empathy, and how others should be treated. Her unique medical conditions provided the opportunity for everyone to learn so that other children could benefit from her experiences.

Molly is survived by her loving parents, Mark and Pam Hathaway, and her siblings; Chrystie (Hathaway) Sawyer, Melissa (Hathaway) Harris, Matthew Hathaway, Laura (Hathaway) Price, Kimberly Hathaway, Katelyn Hathaway, Emily Hathaway, Alexander Hathaway, Yomaris Ortega, Joshua Hathaway, Zachary Hathaway, Sophia Hathaway, and Olivia Hathaway.
