Old Orchard Beach, Maine – Molly Alice Parks, 24, who most currently resided in Manchester, passed away on April 16, 2015 as the result of a heroin overdose.
She was born in York, Maine, on March 13, 1991, a daughter of Tom and Patti (Michaud) Parks.
Molly graduated from Old Orchard Beach High School in 2009 and attended one year at SMCC until her addiction took over. Most recently, she was employed as a delivery driver for Portland Pie Co. in Manchester. She enjoyed theater, fashion, reading – especially Harry Potter, and will always be remembered for fearless personality and her trademark red lipstick.
Along Molly’s journey through life, she made a lot of bad decisions including experimenting with drugs. She fought her addiction to heroin for at least five years and had experienced a near fatal overdose before. Molly’s family truly loved her and tried to be as supportive as possible as she struggled with the heroin epidemic that has been so destructive to individuals and families in her age bracket.
She is survived by her parents, Tom Parks and his wife Pat Noble of Saco, and Patti Michaud Parks of Berlin, NH; sister Kasey Parks of Old Orchard Beach; step-siblings Dustin and Delayna Denicourt of Biddeford, Maine; maternal grandparents Rita and Raymond Michaud of Berlin; paternal grandmother Ruth Parks of Old Orchard Beach; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews, and a niece.
If you have any loved one’s who are fighting addiction, Molly’s family asks that you do everything possible to be supportive, and guide them to rehabilitation before it is too late.
Visitation will be held on Wednesday, April 22, from 4-8 p.m. at the Old Orchard Beach Funeral Home, 36 Portland Ave., Old Orchard Beach, ME 04064
