April 22, 1953 – September 22, 2011
Molly Roscorla, an avid golfer, passed away on September 22, 2011. Molly was born on April 22, 1953 in Fort Knox, KY and spent her early years living in France, England and Germany with her family. Her father enjoyed a rewarding career in the US Air Force and later transferred to Mather Air Force Base in Rancho Cordova where Molly graduated from Cordova High School in 1971. Molly joined Bruce Roscorla in marriage on a beautiful summer day in the Rose Garden of McKinley Park 31 years ago. She enjoyed socializing with her many friends in Rancho Murieta and East Sacramento and also loved her annual vacations to Hawaii and throughout the world with Bruce. Molly’s favorite travel plans included snorkeling with the dolphins in Maui and shopping in Paris. We will miss her smile and charming personality which allowed her to touch people in a special way and provided success in a variety of sales and management positions in the retail fashion industry. Molly joined her parents, Charles and Christine McCarty of Mississippi, and Bruce’s parents, Leland and Wilma Roscorla of Sacramento in Heaven. Molly was a loving sister to Michael, Patric and Linda McCarty; sister-in-law to Lynda Roscorla-Thomas (Mike), Elton (Maureen) and Gary Roscorla. Her niece and nephews, Tanya and Jonathan Roscorla, Jake and Ben Thomas, will miss her glowing personality, love and happiness they could count on at family events. Molly’s friends are invited to celebrate her life on Wednesday, October 5, 2011 from 5-8pm at Casa Garden Restaurant, 2760 Sutterville Road, Sacramento.

    Searching for my old friend, Linda McCarty, I came upon Molly’s obituary. I always looked up to beautiful Molly and idolized her. My heartfelt condolences to her family. With Love, Debbie Slater

    After a couple of years of Covid 19 lockdown, I decided to look for old friends who I’ve lost contact with. This was a little nerve wracking. I was very saddened to see Molly’s obituary, which was not recent, but over 10 years old. I read all the comments which were comforting, some from old friends of ours. Molly and I were close friends in school, freqently shared baby sitting jobs and spent much of our free time together with our friends. But it was at the end of our time together in Rancho Cordova that her father Charles and my mom Veona started chatting in the McCarty’s front yard. The elders discovered that we were cousins. No wonder we were tuned-in. Molly was a natural leader, an easy going low key but a genuinely loving leader. She had a great capacity for caring for others and for just loving people where they were. Very accepting old old soul. She had a great and quiet insight into others that she didn’t necessarily share but that governed her wise actions. I loved that about her. One of my favorite memories from that time, of many simple favorites, is that we met at the apple vending machine everyday after school at Mitchell Jr. High. We each bought a giant red delicious for a dime. Sometimes only sunflower seeds were left, so we bought those. And then we talked and crunched until we parted ways. We young girls had a lovely protected life! My continuing sympathy for Molly’s family and friends, my best to Molly’s dear husband Bruce and to Linda McCarty Moore, who was so wee the last time I saw her that I can imagine what she looks like now. Molly was devoted to her! It is sad that we have all lost a truly great woman!
