Molly Marie Pearson died last week in a scooter accident in Brooklyn, New York. The young woman is being remembered on social media as a vibrant spirit who was loved by all who knew her. In lieu of flowers the Pearson family is asking for donations to the BARC Shelter in Brooklyn in memory of Molly.

24-year-old Molly Pearson was born and raised in New Jersey. She grew up in Ho-Ho-Kus, which she called the “perfect town.” The young girl loved to travel and explore new places. Before moving to Brooklyn she also lived in Boulder, Colorado and the West Village.

She graduated from Northern Highlands Regional High School and then went on to attend Berkeley College in NY.

Those who knew Molly Marie Pearson would call her many things, fiercely loyal, kind, complicated, but most importantly vibrant. According to her obituary, Molly “loved deeply and made sure you knew that. Her laughter was boundless and she practically wiggled in delight. Molly had amazing intuition and was a fantastic judge of character.  She was fiercely loyal and hoped for that in return. Molly loved helping people and animals in need – whether offering her amazing advice or giving them a blanket or a meal.”

Her family says that the young girl loved animals, especially her own pets, a cat named Boots and a dog named Beans. While she lived in Brooklyn she was known to come home every once and a while to visit family and take a nap. Molly had also made friends with all the stray cats in her Brooklyn neighborhood, and it wasn’t uncommon to see her feeding and taking care of them during the day.

She loved to sneak away to the Hamptons, Pennsylvania or even Ho-Ho-Kus. But despite her need to travel, Molly had a strong work ethic and a good judge of character. She recently started a new job at Williamsburg Equinox.
