Mollie Endler, 59, passed away at the University of Pennsylvania Hospital on May 29, 2020 after a five month battle with complications from an autoimmune disease. She is now resting comfortably in the arms of the Lord where she will fear not and suffer no longer.
Mollie was born in Elizabeth, New Jersey to Renee and Paul. She attended Girls Catholic High School in Roselle and went on to Seton Hall Nursing School and then Kean University. Mollie graduated Summa Cum Laude from Kean University in 1987, and went on to take a position at Merck & Co. in Rahway.
During her time at Merck & Co., Mollie worked as a Clinical Trial Data Manager. She was involved in data capture, collection, cleaning and reporting of patient data sent to the FDA for investigational new drugs. She contributed to many successful drug approvals which led to many lives being saved. Mollie met many of her nearest and dearest friends at Merck, affectionately known as the “Merck Ladies” each of which she loved and considered an extension of her family.
In May of 1999, Mollie took a leap of faith and flew to Tula, Russia along with her sister Amy where she adopted her daughter, Fallon. Mollie always wanted to be a Mother and took on the daunting task of raising a child on her own. As a single Mother, Mollie instilled the importance of family, education and love in her child. Never missing a soccer game or any event Fallon was a part of, Mollie was always her number one fan in all things. She was able to see her daughter grow into the young woman she is today.
Mollie enjoyed gardening, vacationing, spending time with her family, going to the beach, reading, watching MASH with JR, crafting and learning new things. She was always able to answer any question you asked her, and was a creative genius; just ask her nephews about their Christmas presents.
She was a devout Catholic and a communicant of St. Andrew’s Church in Avenel where she was a lector, a counter and a bingo volunteer.
Mollie’s wealth of knowledge, kindness, compassion, creative intuition and tender heart will be missed by all that knew her.
Mollie is predeceased by her parents, Paul J. Endler Sr. (2013) and Renee (nee Conway) Endler (2017).
She is survived by her loving daughter, Fallon Endler and her partner, JR Miskewicz. She also leaves behind three sisters, Susan Endler, Amy Endler, Kathleen Pruszkowski and her husband Ray and one brother Paul John Endler Jr. and his wife Kathy. Mollie was also an Aunt to four nephews, Trevor, Sean, Jared and Ian and she leaves behind numerous cousins and friends.
The Endler Family would like to extend their sincere thank you and appreciation to all of the nurses, doctors and staff at the University of Pennsylvania Hospital for taking such great care of Mollie the last few months. Mollie’s wishes were to be an organ donor, a true testament to her loving and steadfast loyalty to humankind. Sadly, she was not able to fulfill this wish so we ask all to please consider becoming an organ donor on Mollie’s behalf.
A drive by funeral, open to the public will take place at the Gosselin Funeral Home on Thursday June 4th at 11 o’clock at 660 New Dover Road Edison, NJ. All cars are to form a line on Wood Avenue and all attendees are to stay in their vehicles and practice social distancing.
A mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at a later date.
Mollie’s wishes in life for herself, as well as her daughter were always to travel, to try new things and learn new things. Fallon and JR will be taking a little piece of her on every trip they take and hopefully, one day Mollie will be able to rest comfortably on every continent in the world.
