    Mollie Cecelia Tibbetts was born the daughter of Robert and
    Laura (Calderwood) Tibbetts on May 8, 1998 in San Francisco,
    California. She was raised in San Francisco and Brooklyn, Iowa
    respectively and graduated from BGM High School in Brooklyn with
    the class of 2017. She attended the University of Iowa in Iowa
    City, Iowa and was majoring in psychology.

    Mollie loved life. Her passion for it radiated from those
    beautiful brown eyes and the smile that she was so quick to
    share with everyone she met. She excelled in writing and speech
    where she shared her thoughts on some very difficult and complex
    subjects, mental health and self-esteem. Her talents were
    rewarded when she was invited to perform them three years at the
    Iowa All State competition. From her first musical appearance,
    she was hooked on theatre and enjoyed acting in the school
    plays. Mollie pushed herself in cross country and made running a
    part of her everyday life. Children are also something Mollie
    loved dearly. She began babysitting at an early age and worked
    the last two summers at the GRMC Day Camp where the kids adored
    her ability to make them laugh and the way she made them feel
    love. She was attending the University of Iowa to become a child
    psychologist to be able to work with children dealing with
    mental health issues. Dance Marathon, choir and singing were
    things she also loved participating in. But what Mollie did best
    was making friends everywhere she went.

    Mollie is survived by her father, Robert Tibbetts of Lafayette
    and Fresno, California; her mother, Laura Calderwood of
    Brooklyn, Iowa; two brothers Jacob and Scott Tibbetts of
    Brooklyn; maternal grandparent, Judy Calderwood of Brooklyn.

    included are Kelsie Sheets of Oskaloosa, IA and Kiegan Watts of
