Muriel Jean 'Molly'

Muriel Jean ‘Molly’ Leckey 2020

Died peacefully and with dignity on December 16, 2020 in Cobourg. Predeceased by her loving husband, Dr. Robert Griffiths (Bud) Leckey in 2002 and their son Robert in 2020. Loving mother of their son Griffiths (Jane) and daughter Jane Leckey. Fondly remembered by their granddaughter Melissa (Cole Petersen).
Also predeceased by her sister Gwen and her brothers Alexander and William. Survived by her sister-in-law Helen Wagenaar, many nieces and nephews, and her faithful Scottish Terrier, Jennie Mackenzie.
Molly was a graduate of the Toronto General Hospital School of Nursing and always maintained her interest in the nursing profession. She felt a strong need to make meaningful contributions to her community, and volunteered in the Emergency Department at the Northumberland Hills Hospital until earlier this year, when COVID-19 prevented volunteer activities.
Like Bud, Molly was passionate about nature and family. After a long search, the pair found a deserted old farm in Northumberland County in 1962. It required many years of restoration before being habitable, and they moved from Toronto to their treasured farm “Strabane” in 1990. The farm was designated as a Heritage Property by the Township of Cramahe Local Architectural Conservation Advisory Committee in 1998. In 2008, Molly and family pursued Conservation Status of a large acreage through the Northumberland Land Trust (NLT) to ensure the land will remain undeveloped and pristine for coming generations in memory of Bud. It is now managed by the NLT and known as the Leckey Nature Reserve.
No flowers, please. If desired, contributions to the NLT (Stewardship Funding) in memory of Molly would be greatly appreciated and help the NLT manage and maintain all its properties. www.nltrust.ca, or PO Box 1153, Cobourg, ON K9A 5A4.
Given the COVID situation, there will be no celebration of life at this time. Private arrangements entrusted to MacCoubrey Funeral Home.
