Obituary for Molly D Zoll (Miller)

Molly D Zoll

November 9, 1941 – August 11, 2022

Molly Deborah Miller, born November 9, 1941, about one month before the Pearl Harbor attack (“a date that will live in infamy,” as FDR said), grew up in White Plains, NY with parents, Pearl and Arthur Miller, and her older brother, Norman.

While attending Hunter College, she met Leonard Zoll, a rabbinical student at HUC-JIR, also in New York. They married in 1961. They had two sons, David and Dan, and moved to Springfield, MA in 1965 where the newly ordained Rabbi Zoll took his first pulpit job. Following many moves, including stops in Cleveland, OH, East Orange, NJ, Stamford, CT, Coral Springs, FL, and Dothan, AL, they moved to Carbondale, IL in 1984 and Molly started her career as a life insurance agent with Northwestern Mutual. In 1999, they moved to San Diego where Molly continued to work with clients and retired after 30 years of service.

Molly enjoyed literature and the arts, especially museums and Jewish film festivals. She loved her pecan pie, which she made every year for Thanksgiving. She outlived her many cats and dogs, including the most beloved Kafka, a fluffy canine with piercing eyes.

Molly was preceded in death by her parents, Pearl and Arthur Miller; husband, Rabbi Leonard Zoll; and her son, David. She is survived by her brother, Norman (Val); son, Dan (Amy); grandchildren, Adam (Thien), Aaron, Alexandra, Sarah, Jaimie, and Liz; and seven great-grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, for those inclined and able, please consider a donation to the Pearl Miller Graduate Fellowship in the Department of English at Florida State University, which is named for Molly’s mother, Pearl, who, like Molly, loved literature and the creative arts.
