She graduated from Jackson Private High School. She was united in holy matrimony to Tobey Marvin Gattin on May 17, 1965. This union was blessed with 3 children. She also obtained an associate’s degree in early childhood education from Navarro College at the age of 50.
Mollie was a loving wife, mother and Nana. She loved her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, above all else. She was a member of Shepard of Love church. She especially loved playing the organ at church and in her free time. Christmas was always her favorite time of year, and she looked forward to spreading the joy of Christ’s birth by posting the “Countdown to Christmas” on Facebook as a yearly tradition.
Some of her favorite activities included visiting with family, spending time with friends, volunteering at the Baylor Auxiliary Thrift Store, and playing card games (such as Phase 10, SkipBo, and Uno) with the people she loved.
