Name of creator
Molly Lenhardt was born Sefanka Molly Bassaraba to Paraska and Wasyl' Bassaraba c. 1914. The family moved to Melville, Saskatchewan when Lenhardt was a child. She completed grade 10 and was enrolled in Sacred Heart Academy in Yorkton to complete high school but was forced to withdraw due to illness. In 1930, she enrolled in the Business College in Yorkton.
Molly Bassaraba married Joseph Lenhardt in 1940 and had two children, Joyce and Wayne. Joseph Lenhardt had been employed by the Dominion Electric Power Limited which was purchased by the Saskatchewan Power Commission in 1945. After he left the company in 1950, the Lenhardt's purchased the Fairway Confectionary in Melville.
In later years Molly Lenhardt followed her interest in art, setting up a studio in her store and becoming recognized nationally as a skilled folk artist. Her work has been exhibited at the Watrous Art Salon and the Dunlop Art Gallery and is included in a number of public and private collections. Lenhardt had strong ties to the Ukranian community and, in 2004, she was recognized as a "Nation Builder" by the Ukrainian Congress of Canada – Saskatchewan Provincial Council.
Molly Lenhardt died on March 7, 1995.
