She was born on June 27, 1923, in Presque Isle, the daughter of Claude Rodney and Lucy Jane (Brooks) Moran. As a teenager, Madeline enjoyed singing with her sister Vivian in church and on the radio church services for the Rev. Melvin McGeorge and the Rev. Dan Pike. She was a graduate of Presque Isle High School, class of 1941, where she enjoyed participating in music and drama. Madeline married Raymond, the love of her life, on November 1, 1941, and they were happily married for nearly 67 years, until his passing in July of 2008. Together, they operated a general store, a potato farm, and, after moving to Corinth, a successful dairy and poultry farm. They were both members of the Charleston Pentecostal Church, where she taught SundaySchool for 53 years. She truly loved each of her students and was a favorite of many! Even as they became adults, she referred to them as "my boys" and "my girls." For many years, she led all of the Sunday school students in singing during opening exercises. She and Ray opened their home to their first pastor "Uncle Gene" Kimball, as well as several evangelists for many years. Over the years, she enjoyed singing in the Souls Harbor Choir with Pastor Ronnie Libby, as well as singing in the church choir. For several years Madeline was coordinator of the church's Senior Adult Fellowship, later serving as their secretary. Madeline was definitely a "people person." She volunteered as the Activities Coordinator at Westgate Manor in Bangor for more than 25 years, where she was recognized with many awards for her volunteerism. She also coordinated a group at Emilio Estates in Corinth. She visited other nursing homes, as well, helping to cheer their residents. In 1989, she was featured by WVII TV, as "Person of the Week" for her volunteer work. She was also a nominee for the prestigious Jefferson Award for her extraordinary public service. Madeline's other volunteer activities included serving as school room mother for her children and granddaughters and serving as a District #64 Spelling Bee judge for several years. Madeline was a talented writer, composing several beautiful songs and poems. Other hobbies included reading, bird watching, gardening, and traveling. She loved cooking for her family and friends, especially being remembered for her famous raised glazed doughnuts, butterscotch rolls, and molasses cookies. She enjoyed taking nature walks, picnicking, fishing, playing various sports, mowing her law on her riding mower, and other outdoor activities. She adored her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and she had an extremely close relationship with all of them. She enjoyed entertaining and spending time with them. Mom, Grams, and Gramsie was truly the "light of all of our lives" and will be greatly missed. Her motto in life was "JOY" - Jesus, others, and you. She taught us all that "The joy of Lord is our strength!" Several friends have stated that they will always remember our Mom for her contagious smile and for being full of the joy of the Lord. Friends were often blessed to receive an encouraging phone call or to be met with a "God bless you. I am praying for you." She always enjoyed meeting people, offering words of encouragement, and hearing others' life stories. Madeline is survived by her three very loving daughters and son; Patricia June and her husband, Kenneth Speed, of Garland, Sandra Doris and her husband, Forrest Doody, of Corinth, Gloria Rae and her husband, Scott Westhrin, of Bangor and Raymond Walter Jr. and his wife, Joan, of Garland.
