Herb Kavash said his wife, Molly Kavash, was com­pletely en­thu­si­as­tic about ev­ery­thing in the com­mu­nity.

“North Wales was her town,” he said. “She was in­volved in a lot of things.”

On June 19, Herb Kavash — ac­com­pa­nied by fam­ily mem­bers and friends — do­nated $2,231.50 and a plaque to the North Wales Area Li­brary in mem­ory of Molly Kavash, who died two years ago.

The money came from con­tri­bu­tions to her me­mo­rial fund, ac­cord­ing to Herb Kavash.

He said the li­brary, lo­cated at 233 S. Swart­ley St., has re­ceived $2,481.50 over­all in do­na­tions from the fund.

Herb Kavash said he also do­nated $2,581.50 to St. Peter’s Evan­gel­i­cal Lutheran Church, at 211 S. Main St., and $100 to the North Wales Com­mu­nity Foun­da­tion from the same me­mo­rial fund.

Molly Kavash had a spe­cial affin­ity for the li­brary ac­cord­ing to Herb Kavash.

He said Molly’s mother, Ada Maag, played a pri­mary role in start­ing the li­brary sev­eral years ago.

Ac­cord­ing to Herb Kavash, the woman in­stilled the de­sire in Molly and her sis­ters to be­come avid read­ers.

“Molly was ded­i­cated to the bet­ter­ment of the North Wales com­mu­nity and very proud of the li­brary’s growth and suc­cess,” Herb Kavash said dur­ing the brief cer­e­mony. “She was a very happy per­son and was de­lighted about hav­ing a li­brary in North Wales. Her in­volve- ment was en­thu­si­as­tic.”

Herb Kavash asked that the li­brary do­na­tion be uti­lized for gen­eral op­er­a­tions ex­penses, ac­cord­ing to Jayne Black­ledge, the li­brary’s ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor.

Molly Kavash, who worked as the reg­is­trar of vi­tal records for Penn­syl­va­nia for nearly 40 years and served on many lo­cal com­mit­tees, died in May 2011 from com­pli­ca­tions re­lated to lung can­cer at the age of 81.

She served on many lo­cal com­mit­tees, in­clud­ing the North Wales Shade Tree Com­mis­sion and the North Wales His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety.

Shortly af­ter Molly Kavash’s death, North Wales coun­cil hon­ored her by at­tach­ing her name to a sec­ond-floor meet­ing room at bor­ough hall.
