Evelyn's Story

SANGERVILLE - Evelyn Mildred Moulton, 90, died at her home Sunday, January 17, 2016, with her daughter and caregiver, Carole by her side. She was born in Dexter, September 13, 1925, the daughter of Leon L. and Lorina (Awalt) Pearl.

Evelyn was a homemaker and also worked at Hathaway Shirt in Dover-Foxcroft. She was called "Ninny" by many, and later "Nunu" after her grandson, Curtis was born. Evelyn lost her husband very early in life and was forced to overcome many of life's challenges by herself. Her meticulous nature with everything in life from her cooking to keeping her house was one of her great virtues. "Nunu" enjoyed cooking breakfast for two of her grandsons, Curtis and Corey every morning before school. She believed a good breakfast was needed for them to do well in school. Her greatest achievement in her own words was raising her three children. She was proud to say that when she was no longer able to maintain her yard, her son-in-law Jeffery maintained it for her.

She was predeceased by her husband of 34 years, Clarence "Karky" Moulton; a brother, Leon Pearl Jr. of Georgia; 3 sisters, Geraldine "Gerry" Hughes of Phippsburg, and Irene Nelson, and Madeline Anderson both of Dexter.

She is survived by a son, Chester "Skippy" Moulton of Eddington and his good friend, Pam Dunham; 2 daughters, Cynthia "Cindy" Troy and her husband, Martin of Waterville, and Carole Jean Wharff and her husband, Jeffery of Sangerville; 6 grandchildren, Ryan Troy of Benton, Laura Troy and her husband, Ross Whitaker, Kelly Moulton, and Lisa Rennert and her husband, Matt, all of VA, Curtis Wharff and his girlfriend, Shaunna of NH, and Corey Wharff and his girlfriend, Alice of Sangerville; 5 great grandchildren, Mykenzie Veilleux of Waterville, Miranda Troy of Benton, Caleb and Ava Rennert of VA, and Aiden James Wharff of Auburn; a sister, Phyllis Nelson of Dexter; and a brother, Maurice "Randy" Pearl of GA; many nieces and nephews.

Evelyn also leaves behind her beloved toy poodle, "Gigi," who was always by her side.

At her request there will be no funeral services at this time. A graveside service will be held in the spring at the Sangerville Village Cemetery.

Donations in Evelyn's memory may be sent to the Sandra J. Littlefield Scholarship Fund, c/o the Maine Community Foundation, 245 Main Street, Ellsworth, ME 04605. Evelyn was very fond of Sandra, a young woman and close family friend that was taken too young.

Life is short, remember to pay it forward with an act of kindness.
