Forever in our hearts, Mollie Victoria Austin Withers, 37, returned to her heavenly home on Tuesday, August 11, 2020, after a long 7-year courageous battle with cancer. She was reborn August 13, 2014 with the help of a stem cell transplant.
Born December 25, 1982 at Holy Cross Hospital to George A Austin and Lauren Kelly Hart Austin.
From the moment she was born, her parents both knew no other gift would ever compare to their precious Christmas baby.
Mother, Wife, Daughter, Sister, Granddaughter, Aunt, Niece, Cousin, Friend.
Mollie was a lot of roles in her life, but no matter who she was to you, she made a huge positive impact.
She was always strong and ignored her pain, so others were not affected by it. She always had a shoulder for you to cry on if you needed one. Tristin said she was an amazing mother to them.
Her heart was so big, being understanding and strong, she was always non-judgmental and there to listen and give advice. She was always there for you when you needed her, for anything. Her strength, courage, perseverance, bright spirit and love was always helping others to be better, and believe in themselves. She was always an inspiration to all that knew her. She remains in our hearts, souls, and memories.
Mollie enjoyed hanging out with family and friends, gardening, canning, camping, sewing, crafting. She always had a fun project for the kids during their play dates. She loved dogs, she had many of her own, as well as fostering others.
Mollie was a member of International Order of Jobes Daughters Bethel 16, Midvale, Utah. She was a RN at University of Utah Health, and the Huntsman Cancer Institute.
Mollie is preceded in death by her Grandparents. Taken too soon from our lives, survived by her husband, Chad Withers, children, Tristin and Victoria, parents, George A Austin (Dawn), Lauren Kelly, stepbrothers, Colby and Sage Cordova. Grandparents, Darlene Hart, Peggy Forsythe. Many Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins. Soul sisters, Lynnette, Sara, and Becky.

Life Story Info
Mollie words can not express how much you will be missed. I still remember the day you were born and me and Amy fighting over who would get to hold you first. I would give anything to hold you one more time. I would tell you how special you are. How amazingly strong you are. How much I admire the silent way to went threw life and your sickness. Just to hold and kiss you goodbye 😘🥰❤️ You are leaving a big void in our family that will never be filled. Rest now, no pain or sickness and give grandma and grandpa a big hug from me.
You are truly a shining star. The sky will be a little less bright now, but I know you're that wonderful angel watching over your beautiful family. I will be forever grateful to have the honor to say you were my friend. I wish I had more time with you. I hope one day, when I grow up, I can be just like you. You're my hero. I love you.🦋🌺☀️💖
