Aletha J. O’Dea, known as Molly, born April 16, 1940 on “Humpback
Mountain” in West Virginia, passed in death on September 3, 2013 into the
loving presence of her husband who had went on to save a place for her in
2011. As she passed, she smiled, as if overjoyed from the reunion. It is a
comfort to know she didn’t suffer; however, her absence is an overwhelming
sorrow to those who loved her.
Molly was a resident of Northlake, IL for twenty-eight years. A fierce hardworker, she spent most of her years in the Chicagoland area working for ITT McDonnell & Miller. An avid adventurer, Molly loved to travel and sightsee, having road tripped to or through the majority of states in the continental United States. Molly found much delight in feeding people; thus while her children were growing up, her home was the place the neighborhood kids and friends wanted to be. Molly’s devotion and adoration for her husband, children, and grandchildren will forever be a light in their lives. Also an artist, Molly wrote, crafted, painted, and made jewelry. Molly will forever be remembered for her generosity, story-telling, laughter, work ethic, integrity, determination, strength, spunk, and love.
Molly is survived by her four children: Nova (daughter) of Northlake, IL,
Joan (daughter) and Marty of Wheaton, IL, Michael (son) and Kim of La
Grange, IL, and Mary (daughter) and David of Evergreen, CO; grandchildren:
Chris, Brittany, Justin, Benjamin, Kaylah, and Spencer; two stepgrandchildren:
Marty Jr. and Cindy.
To honor Molly’s specific wishes, do not send flowers. Molly fought and beat
cancer twice, and finally surrendered the third time; therefore, donations in
