November 18, 1928 – November 12, 2021
Molly M. Carvill (née Andrews) at the age 92 was promoted to glory on November 12, 2021, just six days from her birthday, at the Peace Arch Hospital in White Rock, BC Canada. Molly was born on November 18, 1928 at St. Mary Abbotts hospital in Kensington, London England to Henry and Minnie Andrews.
From the age of 12-yrs old Molly was involved with the Salvation Army as a member of the YP Singing Company in Bath during the war and then with the Regent Hall Songster Brigade in London. Molly was married to Keith Carvill in London, England on August 30, 1947 by Mjr Wesley W. Rich the corps officer at ‘The Rink’. Together these newlyweds immigrated to Canada in 1949 with their very young first child, Kathryn. Molly continued her association with the Salvation Army, singing with the Dovercourt Citadel songsters in Toronto.
For almost ten years, Molly and her husband lived in the US, on Long Island, NY and Allentown, PA where she worked in the emerging field of credit analysis and charge card issuance at Unicard, Chase Bank and Sears Roebuck. With her return to Toronto, Ontario she joined the Bank of Montreal credit department in a similar position until retiring to the South Surrey-White Rock area in 1986.
During retirement Molly and her husband enjoyed travelling the old fashion way by train and bus, frequently taking the Coast Starlight Amtrak train to Los Angeles, California to visit her sister and then to relax on the way back with a stay in Santa Barbara. Their bus trips to places as far as Cedar Breaks National monument in Utah or closer to home like the Oregon or Sunshine coast and our capital,
Victoria gave her a welcome break and the chance to meet and make new friends.
She is survived by her two children, daughter Kathryn Carvill and son, Kevin who both live in Surrey- White Rock, and a brother, Donald H. Andrews and his wife Ann who live in Frisco, Texas. There are also several cousins in England who wrote or emailed her with their family news. She was predeceased by her husband, Keith M. Carvill, parents, Henry George and Minnie Louisa Andrews (née Pullen), sister, Mary J. Pepper and brother, Robert M. Andrews.
From around 1998 until pre-Covid, Molly has often attended the Salvation Army – White Rock corps and supported their work where possible. Please consider donating to the SA Christmas fund this holiday season through the Red Kettles or the church office on Roper Avenue.
