BLOOMINGTON — Molly Anne Henning, 62, passed away Friday (Aug. 9, 2019) in Edina, Minn., surrounded by her loving family after a short battle with ovarian cancer.
Born in San Leandro, Calif., to Frank and Eileen McNamara, she was a graduate of Bergan High School, Peoria, and The College of St. Catherine, St. Paul, Minn. Molly played varsity tennis at both schools, qualifying for the first girls' high school state tennis tournament in Illinois.
She met her husband, Paul, in college and they built their life together in the Twin Cities. She worked as director of public relations at Carlson Companies, retiring to raise her twin sons.
Molly is survived by her husband of 39 years, Paul, of Eden Prairie, Minn.; her sons, Ryan of Eden Prairie and Matthew of Fargo, N.D. She is also survived by two sisters, Colleen (Mike) Curran of Bloomington and Maureen McNamara of Mishawaka, Ind.; brothers-in-law, Walter (Geri) Henning, Michael Polanski; sisters-in-law, Janet Santicola, Mary Lee (Ron) Harris; and numerous nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents; sisters-in-law, Kathy Moisa and Eileen Polanski; brothers-in-law, Gerald Moisa, Marius Santicola, Michael Henning; and nephew, Danny Moisa.
Our hearts are broken, but her examples of love, dedication to others and devotion to God and family will remain with us forever.
