Obituary for Wanda Gwen Al-Molky
WANDA GWEN AL-MOLKY – Age 61, of Upper Sackville, passed away peacefully on Thursday February 13th with her family by her side at the Victoria General Palliative Care Unit.
She is survived by her parents Naseem (Jr) and Anna Al-Molky, (Slauenwhite), sister Ruth (Warren Parsons), brother Kevin (Joy Smith), along with nephew Adam McNamara and niece Amanda Wilneff. She was many things to many people; a daughter, a sister, an Aunt, a Godmother, and a friend. To her siblings she was known as "Sis".
Wanda was the first child for Anna and Al and many a night during her first years would find them rocking her to sleep so she did not cry. Despite being the oldest, as a family we always treated her special due to ongoing illness's. Wanda completed her Secondary education at Sackville High and went on to Graduate from Mount Saint Vincent University with "Early Childhood Studies. Later she continued her education obtaining her certificate in Fashion Design at Mount Saint Vincent as well.
Wanda had several jobs during the early years but her passion and calling was in the Clothing industry where she designed and created outfits for all ages. From wedding dresses to children's clothes to maternity wear she handmade the patterns and sewed the garments for various clients and family. She helped to develop Marine survival suits for Narwhal Marine while employed there during the early eighties. To test the survival suits against the elements she had to obtain her certification for scuba diving, and then it was off to Halifax harbour for a cold dip in the ocean. She also worked a number of years with Suttles and Seawinds, a shop that specialized in quilted skirts, dresses and coats. After returning to Sackville she worked for the City teaching "Newcomers" arriving from various countries to sew.
Wanda was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis at this time which would change her life forever. Her passion for fashion and clothing design over the next few years would be taken from her as the disease progressed. Wanda loved animals, especially her little dog named Skippy who would sleep by her bedside every night.
