December 14, 1928 – December 3, 2020
It is with deep sadness that the family of Mollie Peardon Kissock announces her peaceful passing the morning of December 3, 2020. Leaving many beautiful memories, Mollie’s story began in Peardonville on December 14th, 1928 into the close-knit pioneer family of Gordon and Lillias Peardon.
She is survived by sister Jean and brother Stan (Eleanor), daughters Lynda (Jack), Carol, her grandchildren; Shane, Chris, Dawn, Jeremy, Corey, Jacob and their spouses., great grandchildren; Maddi, Jordin, Kody, Kolbie, Riley, Charlee, Brodie, and the Van Horn family; Kim, Stuart, Sam and Matt, numerous nieces and nephews, daughter-in-law Sheri Davidson, sisters-in-law Betty Ann Peardon and Diane Kissock.
Mollie was predeceased by her husband John (2002), son Bruce (2015), brother Dick, granddaughter Amy and great granddaughter MacKenzie.
John and Mollie married in 1948, settled on a small farm in the area to raise their family and were dedicated to family and community their whole lives. Lets’ remember air shows on the hill, New Year’s Eve parties and money in every birthday cake, just to name a few happy times.
Mollie was a founding member of the Peardonville Women’s Institute and the Peardonville Hall Association, of which she remained an active member until her death.
She and John were members of the B.C. Hereford Assoc. and the Abbotsford 4-H Beef Club. Their involvement with the Hereford Assoc. saw them make many lifelong friends and travel to events right across Canada.
Mollie volunteered with the Girl Guides, as a Brownie Leader and eventually in the role of Commissioner for the area. She was the secretary for the MSA Pioneers for many years and an active member of the Historical Societies in Abbotsford (Trethewey House) and Aldergrove.
During her time with those groups she helped to plan, write and publish several books and stories of the Pioneers and the founding of the community she loved.
In 2017 she moved from her beloved farm and took up residence at the Regency Towers in Abbotsford. She quickly became involved with the community there and was welcomed by the residents.
The family would like to thank Dr. Caroline Cook, and the staff at The Oxford for the incredible care Mollie received over the last few months. She will be sorely missed.
A Service will be held at a later date when it is safe to gather again. Arrangements through First Memorial Funeral Services in Aldergrove. Please consider a donation in Mollie’s name to either Heritage Abbotsford Society or Ronald McDonald House Canada Charities.
