Molle, Sharon Fay (5 Aug. 1941 - 1958)


Sharon Molle, 16, Killed Near Loyal

Loyal - Clark County’s first traffic fatality of 1958 occurred shortly after 2 o’clock Saturday afternoon with a death of a 16 years old town of Beaver farm girl.

Sharon Fay Molle, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arnold Molle, route 1, Unity, and queen of the 1958 Loyal High School junior prom, was killed instantly on a town of Beaver road, about 8 miles northeast of here.

She was driving a car which went out of control after hitting a soft spot in the road. The vehicle swung around and turned on its side. Sharon was thrown from the car and crushed beneath it.

The girls had been to the Arnold Pieper farm and were returning to their home when the accident occurred.

Sharon was born Aug. 5, 1941, in the town of Green Grove and was educated in the Oak Grove School. She was a junior at the Loyal High School.

She is survived by her parents, two sisters, Mrs. Delbert (LaVonne) Schutte, Unity; Shirley, 14, and a brother, Roger, 17, both at home.
