Molly Marie Pearson, 24 of Brooklyn, NY, formerly of Ho-Ho-Kus, NJ died tragically and unexpectedly on Saturday, November 6, 2021.
Molly was born in Ridgewood, NJ on April 30, 1997 and grew up in Ho-Ho-Kus, a place she called “the perfect town.” She graduated from Northern Highlands Regional High School and attended Berkeley College in NYC.
Molly had a spark like no other. Her light and energy could not be contained within four walls. She loved to travel and meet new people. She lived in Boulder, CO before taking on NYC, where she fell in love with the West Village. Recently she moved to Brooklyn and embraced her new neighborhood.
Molly was kind, complicated and unapologetically herself. She loved deeply and made sure you knew that. Her laughter was boundless and she practically wiggled in delight.
Molly had amazing intuition and was a fantastic judge of character. She was fiercely loyal and hoped for that in return. Molly loved helping people and animals in need - whether offering her amazing advice or giving them a blanket or a meal.
Molly had the gift of creativity, style and design. Her writings and stories were captivating and her feelings would jump off the page. She could make a dynamite outfit out of a scarf and a t-shirt. She loved Bottega Veneta to Balenciago as much as a great find at a thrift shop or TJ Maxx. Her interior design talent began in grade school, as she planned the complete remodel and redesign of her childhood bedroom almost every year. In between, when the paint and curtains were not being changed, she would single handedly move all of her furniture to create a new look. This continued to her current spot in Brooklyn. She would get so excited when she found a “new” treasure on the curb. No matter the furniture size, she would get it up to her apartment and blend it in to her decor.
Molly loved her pug Beans and her cat Boots. Her day was not complete until she fed and visited the many stray cats (she named them all) throughout her neighborhood in Brooklyn.
Molly loved to take naps at home or escape to the Hamptons, Pennsylvania or Ho-Ho-Kus but always knew that work came first. She had a strong work ethic and was so proud and excited about her new career path at Williamsburg Equinox.
Family and friends filled her life with joy. She loved getting advice from her big brother Charlie. She loved watching her little brother Henry play any sport, especially football. She adored her escapades with her brother Bartek. She considered her parents her best friends. She was blessed with grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins who were very much a part of her life. Molly had friends from every walk of her life and no matter the time apart, they could pick up right where they left off. This is how she and Liam got [back]together. Sweethearts at 15, they reconnected 8 years later and have been inseparable ever since.
One of Molly’s strongest convictions and her motto was to ‘never leave someone behind’ so whether you were hiking a mountain or leaving a theater with her, Molly would wait and make sure no one was left behind. Surely she is waiting at Heaven’s gates, waiting for us.
Molly will be forever missed by her devastated family. Her parents, Margaret and Scott Pearson, brothers Charlie and Henry and honorary brother Bartek Rybka. Grandparents Rick and Mary Ann Pearson. Aunts and Uncles - Pam Pearson, Joe and Theresa Kennelly, Michael Kennelly and Tom and Jennifer Kennelly. She also leaves many cousins and extended family. As well as a heartbroken boyfriend, Liam Mullin and his warm and wonderful family. She was predeceased by her Aunt Patricia Kennelly Denker and maternal grandparents Joseph and Marge Kennelly.
Visitation will be at Feeney Funeral Home, 232 Franklin Ave, Ridgewood on Monday, November 15, 2021 from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.
