Obituary for Maureen Molly Lindberg

Maureen Ann (Molly) Lindberg passed away and found peace on Tuesday May 1, 2018 in UPMC Chautauqua WCA.
Molly was born on May 21, 1938 in Buffalo, a daughter of the late Hubert and Margaret Turner. She was an honors graduate of Amherst Central High School and a 1958 graduate of the EJ Meyer Memorial Hospital School of Nursing earning her degree as a Registered Nurse. She later went on to earn Bachelor and Master degrees in nursing and health care administration.
On May 3, 1958 Molly married her lifelong love and partner Charles A. Lindberg and together they established a home in Allegany State Park and raised three children, later moving to the Randolph area in 1972. First employed as a RN in the former Salamanca District Hospital, her career in nursing led to a wide variety of work in the field over the course of the next several decades. Included in her career achievements are establishing a staff nurse position at the Randolph Children’s Home, medical case management for the NYS Office of Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities (JN Adam Developmental Center), and Director of Nursing at Our Lady of Victory Hospital in Buffalo. A Certified Case Manager, Molly started her own consulting company in the early 1990s, McLin Associates. As a consulting health care case manager, she managed patient cases for the federal government, insurance companies and HMOs and no job was too big or technology too daunting for her to tackle. One of her many accomplishments was helping to establish the Chautauqua County Health Network for people without employer covered health insurance.
Molly was a woman of faith and very active in the East Randolph United Methodist Church where she taught Sunday School and held various positions related to church activities. She was a founding member of Allegany Region Missions and planned and led many medical and construction mission trips to Haiti, Jamaica and Brazil as well as acting as Assistant Treasurer.
Passionate about volunteering in her community, Molly was a Girl Scout Leader, NYS Surrogate Decision Making Panelist and served on many boards and committees in the Chautauqua-Cattaraugus area. She was always a fierce advocate for the less fortunate by helping them navigate through medical and social services red tape to try and improve their quality of life. Equally passionate about exploring the world, she and her husband travelled to 38 countries in Asia, Africa, Europe, South America and Australia as well as throughout North America. She truly enjoyed planning and taking trips to destinations near and far.
Even though Molly was a driving force in her work and community, her family came first and foremost. A loving, caring and devoted wife, mother and grandmother, she will be severally missed.
Surviving are her husband, sons Charles R. (Diana) Lindberg of Belfast, NY and Kevin J. (late Jenny) Lindberg of Randolph, daughter Mary Jo of Randolph, sister Judith (Gary) Hummer of Clarence, NY, brother James (late Theodora) Turner of Richmond, VA, grandchildren Michael VanVlack, Thomas Armstrong, Susan Marcotte , Laura Yehlik, Michelle Krawczyk, Tara Mueller , Kellie Prepodnic, Karen Textor, Tristan Lindberg, Nicole Lindberg, beloved nieces and nephews and several great grandchildren.
She was predeceased by her parents, two infant children John Arby and Bethany Ann and grandson David Textor.
The family will receive friends from 10:00 to 11:00 AM on Saturday May 5, 2018 at the East Randolph United Methodist Church, 122 Church St. East Randolph. A memorial service followed by a luncheon will be held immediately afterward. Pastor Rodney Mileham will officiate.
