Molly was born July 12, 1942, in Van Nuys, Cal­i­for­nia and died Novem­ber 24, 2018. Her fam­ily moved to Ea­gle Point, Ore­gon, in 1950 and Molly grad­u­ated from Ea­gle Point High School in 1960. She grad­u­ated from South­ern Ore­gon Col­lege in 1964 and mar­ried John Hod­son in 1964. She taught ele­men­tary school in Ore­gon un­til 1969, when they moved to Van Nuys, Cal­i­for­nia, where she con­tin­ued teach­ing un­til 1978.
