EAST MILLINOCKET AND AUGUSTA - Margaret T. Stoddard, 93, wife of the late Malcolm Stoddard, passed away Sept 14, 2015 at her home. She was born Jan 15, 1922, in East Millinocket, the daughter of Domenick and Guilia (DeMeo) Moscone.

Margaret attended East Millinocket schools and later received a Bachelor of Science from the University of Maine. Her internship was taken at the School of Dietetics, Beth Israel Hospital, Boston, where she remained as administrative dietician for several years. She was a member of the American Dietetic Association and the Maine Dietetic Association; member of Pi Chapter of Phi Mu Sorority; secretary of Local 902, National Federation of Federal Employees. She lived at Togus and was a member of the Augusta Players. In a new assignment she supervised a staff of nearly 100 professional and non professional employees in directing the dietetic program in Togus' 870 bed medical units. At her retirement from Togus, the administrator of the hospital, Colonel Malcolm Stoddard also retired and Margaret and Malcolm became man and wife. Her many interests included traveling, her class trip to the New York Worlds Fair, and also to Cuba, Mexico, Italy, Washington DC and a roadtrip to Florida with her nephew Edward Madden and her three sisters, Lena, Eva and Helen to visit her brother William. Her other interests included bowling, golfing, bridge, and Bingo; adult education in art, rug hooking and braiding, quilting and knitting. With her husband, Malcolm, she spent much time at Nesowadnehunk and Grand Lake Stream, and also rented a cottage on the coast each July. On reflecting she would say she had a good life and had no regrets.

In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by nine older brothers and sisters Lena and Angelo Gaetani, Joseph and Lenora Moscone, Mary and Julian Federico, Anthony Sr., and Kathleen Moscone, Henry Moscone, Charles and Charlotte Moscone, Eva and Edward Madden, Helen Moscone, William and Jean Moscone; too many nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews to name.

A graveside service will be held at 2 p.m. Thursday Oct 1, 2015 at the Civic Center Drive section of the Maine Veterans Memorial Cemetery, Augusta. Those who wish may donate in her memory to Eva Madden Scholarship at Schenck High School. Condolences may be left at www.clayfuneralhome.com.
