Arran’s oldest resident lived her life to the full

Beatrice Mary Wilson (Molly) 28.05.1912 to 23.03.2016

Arran’s oldest resident, Molly Wilson, died last month at the grand old age of 103. Here her daughter Mary Robinson who lives in Whiting Bay gives a personal account of her life and times.

Molly was born Beatrice Mary Plater on May 26 1912, the year the Titanic went down, in Aylesbury. Her parents were Harry and Beatrice Plater. Harry was a bespoke tailor.

Molly was the eldest and only girl of the family and her father spoiled her. She was able to wheedle whatever she wanted from him – so much so that he bought her a very large silver ball which became known as Molly’s moon, which we still have.
