Obituary: Marlene Rose ("Molly Rose") DiMartino - Class of 1964

MADISON - Molly Rose, christened Marlene Rose DiMartino, age 49, passed from this life on Friday, August 11, 1995 following a prolonged illness. Molly was a graduate of Madison Central High School and the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Upon graduation, Molly worked at the Oregon School for Girls. Those who knew Molly will remember her for the sincerity of her convictions. She was an advocate and activist for all things pure and good. Molly lived by her convictions. As a senior in high school, she stated her convictions in a Youth in the Pulpit address at First Baptist Church in Madison. "The important thing in the search is not that you find a belief, it's that you find meaning in your life, for it is only when you find honesty and integrity in your belief that you will truly be satisfied." Molly is survived by her sisters, Carla DiMartino Butterfield and Nancy K. DiMartino; her brother, Carl R. DiMartino; many nieces; nephews; aunts; and uncles. She was preceded in death by her father, Carl Joseph DiMartino; and her mother, Marjorie Nelson DiMartino. Friends may call from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. on Friday August 18, 1995 at the CRESS FUNERAL HOME, 3610 Speedway Road. Services will be private. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that memorials may be made to a charity of your choice.
