Elizabeth Moore Molloy died peacefully on July 12, 2020 surrounded by her loving family. "Bette" was born in in Glasgow Scotland where she lived until she was 20 when she met her husband, John Molloy. Together, they emigrated to Canada, where they enjoyed eleven happy years and had four children before settling in Simsbury in 1963 where they joined the Ensign Bickford community. Bette and John were active participants in the town. They made many lifelong friends, enjoyed a tight-knit Scottish-American circle, joined St. Mary’s Parish, and raised their children on Hopmeadow Street where Bette lived until 2019. She was a devoted mother who, after raising her children, began a career as an interior designer at BKM Enterprises, earned her IBD certification for commercial business design and grew an impressive reputation in the greater Hartford area. When she retired to travel with her husband and devote time to her grandchildren, she continued her passion and hobby as a part-time collector and reseller of antiques. Bette loved opera, the Hartford Stage and Bushnell Theater, cups of tea, and her close friends. More than anything else, Bette loved her family, especially her ten grandchildren who were the light of her life. She was predeceased by her husband, John, and is survived by sons Edward Molloy and his wife Elisabeth of Granby and their children, Katherine, Alison and William; and Brian Molloy, his wife Wendy and their children Sam and Emily; her daughters: Jennifer Molloy Ryan, her husband Jeffrey and their children John and Ailsa; and Marjorie Molloy Malpiede and her sons Edward, Michael and Jack. The Molloy family would like to recognize the unparalleled staff on the Chapel Crossing Unit at McLean for their incredible care and compassion, especially during the current pandemic. Under the circumstances, a mass of Christian burial will be limited to immediate family. A celebration of Bette’s life will take place as soon as it is safe to gather a larger crowd. If you would like to honor Bette, please simply follow her life-long advice to “be kind and do your share.” If you would like to donate to a cause in Bette’s name, please consider the Friends of Simsbury Public Library at

Dear Jen, Jeff, Marj, Teddy, Lisa, Brian and Wendy -- We are so sorry for your loss. Have been thinking about you and Bette and all our great memories with her. We loved Bette and will really miss her. We will never forget how welcoming she was to us, making us instantly feel part of the Molloy clan. We always looked forward to seeing Nana Bette ---catching up with her over a cup of tea or a glass of red wine, outings to local gardens or historic houses, hearing the latest about all her grandchildren (whom she adored!) or the happenings at 476. She always greeted us with a big smile, inviting us immediately to sit down with her and wanting to hear how we were and what was going on in our lives. Scattered around our home are wonderful reminders of Bette --all the thoughtful little antique finds that she had picked up for us and would surprise us with when we saw her. She loved her family dearly and I hope that you all find comfort in how beautifully you loved and cared for her and all the laughter and fun that you surrounded her with through all her years. Cheers to Nana Bette! Lots of love -- Laura, Jamey, Katherine, Ben and Patrick

Like Eve and my brother, John, agreed it was good to read Bette's obituary. The words helped to articulate the special experience it was to have had her in my life. I am incredibly grateful to all the Molloys. Teddy, Brian, Jen and Marj, your parents and your home was the most comfortable and exciting and normal place to be. Since my parents were part of that tight knit Scots-American circle, I was lucky to fit right in! Always, your Mom welcomed me with a smile and a chat and made me feel good about myself. All the kids in my generation wanted to hang out in your Mom's home. She created a beautiful space and the character of your family was so attractive to all. It's natural that family was central to Bette's orbit and I am proud to claim that I was firmly in the mix. She is terribly missed and lovingly remembered with what feels like unlimited memories.XOX

What a beautiful obit. I love being reminded of Bette's accomplishments and joys. I've been thinking about her so much this week. I have to say she was a role model for me, and I loved her so much. She was so truly, unapologetically, fabulously herself. And she was so accepting of me when I needed acceptance so badly. Some my fondest memories are being at 476, and Bette yelling "Eve - shut up!" because I was laughing so loud. I am so looking forward to reading other notes on this memory wall. Peace to all. Eve PS - Love this picture of you gals.
