Hi Janis, Finding an obituary in Southern California is difficult because of the many towns and cities with the counties. There are no obituary volunteers in Santa Clara Co. Also since Molly died single an obituary might not have been created for her.
You can check at Legacy, legacy.com/obituaries/mercurynews/ . There is no fee to check and if you find her obituary, the fee is negligible.
You can check the Silicon Valley Library System Reference Center's web site at http://obit.systemref.orghttp://obit.systemref.org. Fill out the form to request an obituary and a fee is charged.
You can contact the Santa Clara County Historical & Genealogical Society, scchgs.org/main/service.html . They charge a fee. Successful Searching!
