Obituary of Molly Wilhelmina Durocher
Molly Wilhelmina Durocher January 26, 1944 ~ December 27, 2020 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Molly Wilhelmina Durocher of Emma Lake, SK. Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, Sister, and friend to many. Molly passed away on Sunday, December 27, 2020, in Prince Albert, SK, at the Victoria Hospital at the age of 76. Molly was born in 1944 to Alfred and Florence Becker in Bredenbury, Saskatchewan. Molly's early years were spent being a wife, mother and fostering numerous youths facing difficult circumstances in Regina. Molly owned and operated El Toroz Gifts, a Mexican import shop on Broad Street in Regina. She loved to make buying trips to Mexico, and it was one of her favorite places to visit. One summer, Molly and her husband Reg loaded up a school bus that they had converted to a camper and took 18 kids, their own, as well as their foster kids, on a holiday to tour the United States and meet people along the way. Pizza eating competitions are just one of the many memories of that unforgettable summer vacation. She also worked for Henderson Directory and Tanka Research in Regina until she moved to Emma Lake in 1989, where she continued to foster youth, as well as raise her own family. Molly kept in touch with a large number of the youth who had spent time in her care and was visited by many of them over the years - always considering them her own. Molly also worked in Prince Albert, first as a parent-aide and then as a family support worker at Native Coordinating Council until she retired at 67 years old. Molly loved her work and made lifelong friendships with co-workers. She loved her lake life with Reg and spent time picking wildflowers, having beach days, weiner roasts, and tobogganing with the grandchildren. Molly and Reg enjoyed berry picking and gardening together and, of course, baking and canning, with all of their delicious abundance. Evenings spent having coffee on the deck in the summer, and enjoying the beautiful scenery was something everyone who visited Molly got to enjoy. In recent years Molly took numerous holidays with her best friend and sister Louise Hanson. Molly and Reg could often be found creating new flower gardens or working in their yard on their Emma Lake property. Molly's love of laugher and practical jokes, along with her sassy attitude, will be missed by all those whose lives she touched.

To the angry, I was cheated, but to the happy, I am at peace, and to the faithful, I have never left. I cannot speak, but I can listen. I cannot be seen, but I can be heard. As you stand upon the shore gazing at a beautiful sea, remember me. As you look upon a mighty forest, in all its majesty, remember me. Remember me in your hearts and in your thoughts, remember of the times we loved, and the times we cried, the battle I fought, and the times we laughed. For if you always think of me, I will never have gone.
