Our deepest and heartfelt sympathies go out to the Sheehan and Corkill families at the loss of their beloved Molly.

Molly was so special to our dance school. Many of our students had the opportunity to meet Molly at Sheehan’s when they bought their dance shoes. She sold our students thousands of shoes throughout the years - shoes that are still circulating our school to this day. She always made sure to “share” the fact that Joseph’s favorite candy was Smarties, so when students came in with their new shoes they came in with candy too.

Molly will be greatly missed. She was kind, funny and lively. We will miss her big laugh and spunky attitude. We love you, Molly!
