Please share a memory of Ina to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
INA FLORENCE (MERRY) MOULTON, 88, went to her heavenly home on October 22, 2010 surrounded by her loving family. She was born July 7, 1922 in Swanville, Maine, the daughter of John and Sadie (Dyer) Merry. She attended school in Belfast, moving her family to Thorndike in 1954 with her husband, Irving. Together they raised three sons and five daughters. She attended church throughout her life, most recently Brooks Pentecostal. Our Mom was a special person, opening her home to family and friends, providing delicious meals to anyone who’d stop to visit. At Christmastime her home was filled with fun and laughter, all anticipating her special treats of popcorn balls, needhams, fudge and punch. She loved being with her family, especially her grandchildren, and going for rides, especially when she ended up at a yard sale which was her favorite pastime. Mom was always warm and gentle, kind and caring, selfless and humble. She taught many lessons and warmed many hearts. She was very proud of and deeply loved her family, and her family deeply loved her. She was predeceased by her husband, Irving; brothers Earle, John and Elwood Merry; sister Marie Opdahl. She is survived by her three sons and their wives, Norman and Betty Moulton of Belfast, Reggie and Lola Moulton of Florida, Gary and Lee Moulton also of Florida; five daughters and their husbands, Sandra and Roy Greeley of Knox, Beverly and Paul Davis of Exeter, Gail Moulton of Stockton Springs, Cheryl and Edgar Ashey of Searsport, Pam and Jeffrey Buxton of Hampden; 23 grandchildren; 43 great-grandchildren; three great-great-grandchildren; two sisters, Millie and husband Lloyd Sylvester of Searsport and Ruthie Robbins of Belfast; a brother, Ervin and Faustina Merry of Belfast; sisters-in-law, Delores Merry, Hazel Merry, Barbara Davis and Martha Tweedie.
