MOLLY CALLAHAN (1961–2022)

Molly Callahan was a freelance writer and copy editor who focused on local journalism and digital marketing. A native of Northeast Ohio, Molly was a graduate of Kent State University, with a major in journalism, and lived in this area most of her life. She started the CLE ON THE CHEAP blog when she discovered that, as she said, “you don’t need a lot of money to have a lot of fun.” Before her freelance career, Molly was a copy editor and columnist at a number of newspapers, including the New Orleans Times-Picayune and the Cleveland Plain Dealer.  From 2017 until the end of her life, she was a committed activist on behalf of women living with ovarian cancer.
