Mary obtained her teaching degree in 1927 and started her teaching career at a one-room schoolhouse in Tiverton, where she taught grades 1 to 8. However, she had to return to Clearview to help her parents during the Great Depression. She moved to other schools during this time. In 1941, she retired to raise her 2 daughters. But in 1952, she resumed her teaching profession, spending another 16 years teaching at two different schools before retiring in 1968 at the age of 61. She lived on her own until 1987 when she moved in with her daughter and son-in-law.

Moles passed away in Batteaux, Simcoe County, Ontario, Canada, on 7 March 2018, at the age of 110 years, 235 days. She was survived by her two daughters, four grandchildren, and two great-grandsons.

LongeviQuest congratulates Mary Moles’s family on her posthumous recognition.
