Mollie Rae Caine, born to Bertha and Louis Litvak, in Indianapolis, Indiana, passed away peacefully in her sleep in the morning of June 7, 2021, just 3 days short of her 100th birthday. Her parents were active members of the Jewish cultural/political organization, The Workmen's Circle, and Mollie attended kindershul as a child. She had an older sister, Clara, and a younger brother, Sidney, and grew up in a very warm and loving home. She graduated from Broad Ripple High School and, at age 20, married the love of her life, Jack Cohen (Caine). The Cohens (later: Caines) had 3 children, Daniel, Elliott, Judy, who survive Mollie. Mollie is predeceased by her parents, siblings, and husband.
Mollie was an active member of The Indianapolis Hebrew Congregation and Hadassah while in Indianapolis. She was very artistic, as well, and a very accomplished seamstress, having sewn much of her own wardrobe as well as for family and friends. She worked in retail, usually selling clothing and jewelry. Mollie and Jack had a very active social life in Indianapolis.
In 1979, Mollie and Jack moved to the Los Angeles area, finally settling down in Encino. They continued to have a very active social life and enjoyed traveling the nation and the world, and enjoying their grandchildren. Her last years were spent at The Evergreen Senior Care center, in Alhambra CA, where she was attended to by a very caring staff. A very vivacious person, Mollie will be missed by her children and their spouses, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Graveside services will be at Indianapolis Hebrew Cemetery South on June 10, 2021 at Noon.
May the memory of her be a blessing!
