Granoff, Molly

GRANOFF, Molly, 93, of Merrymount Drive, Warwick, RI, died peacefully at home on 11/21/22. She was the beloved and devoted wife of 62 years of the late Marvin L. Granoff.

Born in Providence to the late Charles and Sarah Kadsivitz, she was the loving mother of two sets of twins: Charles Granoff (Angel) of East Providence, Rick Granoff (Marcy) of Cranston, Faye Stolzman (Robert) of Providence and Dr. Sara Granoff-Schor (Dr. Charles) of Providence. She will forever be remembered by her four grandchildren Jonathan Granoff (Paige), Jamie Granoff, Nora Stolzman, and Jenna Schor. Molly also is survived by her sister Rose (Kadsivitz) Sagan (the late Lester) and sister-in-law Nanci Levin Kay (the late Harry). She also leaves many nieces, nephews, and many great nieces and nephews. Molly was one of eight devoted Kadsivitz brothers and sisters whom she dearly loved.

Children and family were a huge part of who Molly was. Entertaining family at her summer home in Narragansett was one of her greatest joys. Molly was predeceased by her brothers Sam, Bob, Harry, and Nathan Kay (the late Robin Montgomery). As well as sisters Betty (Kay) Plotnick, Sylvia Greenfeld (the late Harold), and her late nephew Neil Greenfeld Molly was a voracious reader of all books but liked historic novels the best. Molly loved the beach, oil painting, playing tennis, bridge, and canasta.

The Granoff family would like to thank Molly’s incredible care givers and loyal “handyman” for their many years of kindness, compassion, and hard work. Thank you for the love you have shown Molly: Maureen Lipata, Wanda Carroll, Mona Dionne, Ernestina Johnson, Paula Ginalski, Cynthia Gallo, the late Helen Sears and Brian Carpenter.

Funeral service burial and shiva will be private. Contributions in her memory may be made to HopeHealth Hospice Care, 1085 North Main Street, Providence 02903 or the Alzheimer’s Association of RI, 245 Waterman St, Suite 306, Providence 02906.

    Dear Mrs. Granoff, May you Rest In Peace! You were loved dearly by your extraordinary children and grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and many others in your extended family, including several remarkable caregivers over the years. Your son, Charles, has welcomed us into his life like brothers and sisters for more than forty years. You will be missed greatly by so many!

    This poem was shared with me at a time of loss, and I share it forward.
    Death is nothing at all. It does not count. I have only slipped away into the next room. Nothing has happened. Everything remains exactly as it was. I am I and you are you, and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged.
    Whatever we were to each other, that we are still. Call me by the old familiar name. Speak to me in the easy way, which you always used. Put no difference in your tone. Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, and pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without an effort without the ghost of a shadow upon it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was. There is an absolute unbroken continuity. What is Death but a negligent accident? Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner. All is well .
    Written by Henry Scott Holland (27 January 1847 – 17 March 1918) was Regius Professor of Divinity at the University of Oxford
