With grace and valor, Mollie Lasky passed away on Tuesday, August 16, 2011, surrounded by her family. A graveside service will be held at 1 p.m. Friday, August 19, 2011 at Jewish Glendale Cemetery in Des Moines, Iowa.

Mollie was born in Philadelphia, PA on July 4, 1913. She married Max on December 10, 1933, and cherished the 71 years he was by her side. They lived in Philadelphia and St. Louis before moving to Des Moines 16 years ago. While she was an active volunteer at the Jewish Center for the Aged in St. Louis, the majority of her time was spent taking care of those she loved most.

Mollie is survived by sons Jack (Delores) Lasky of St. Louis, MO; Harvey (Cyndi) Lasky of Orinda, CA; Barry (Ellen) Lasky of St. Louis, MO, Stuart (Debbie) Lasky of Minnetonka, MN; and daughters Trudi (Marty) Rosenfeld of Clive, IA; and Phylis (Thomas) Hennessy of St. Louis, MO. Also surviving are 18 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren. Mollie was preceded in death by her husband, Max, her parents, and brother, Sol J. Weiner.

Mollie's family would like to thank the staff at the Iowa Jewish Senior Life Center, whom she loved dearly. You made her a home and surrounded her with love.
