Our Nana, Linda M. Moulin, was dropped from Heaven with a little devil on her shoulder. She was the best. She is now with her #1 son, Roger J. Moulin (11/13/12), and BFF and soul sister Sally S. Johnson (11/26/15). Her spirit is carried on by her amazing daughters Laura “Laurabelle” Richards and Lisa “The Little One” Roy, son-in-law Joe “Yosepie” Richards, grandchildren Shane (Mr. Shane) and wife Christina, Anthony and partner Nneka, Heather (Featherbaby) and partner Jason, Randall and wife Shannon, Phoebe, and Molly, and great-granddaughter Audrey Adele. The lunch girls and all of her friends were her definition of “Family.”
She was forever burning out our retinas as the self-appointed family photographer and we thank her for capturing all these precious moments. She was an accomplished artist known for her work with ceramics, feisty coloring books, surreal paint-by-numbers, and colorfully crocheted blankies. She loved spending time with her grandkids, always quick to offer up a smorgasbord of the finest candies, jelly beans, and junk food to any takers - but the popcorn and Pepsi was mandatory.
She was an active member of her community and never hesitated to help others. She worked as a CNA, donated to countless local charities, was officially recognized for saving at least two lives, and volunteered at the Auburn Senior Center which she lovingly called “The Wrinkle Farm.”
She scooted through a Bucket List trip to Dollywood, tore it up on many Girls’ Weekends, and could cram as many dollar-store treasures into a Christmas gift bag as she could family members into her trailer for Thanksgiving dinner. She lived loud, loved deeply, and did everything her own way - including writing most of this. Our Nana-Banana will be greatly missed.
Please join us for a Celebration of Nana’s Life at Britton-Wallace Funeral Home, 91 Central St., Auburn, MA on Thursday, January 12th, from 4 – 7 PM. Nana requested “no sad stuff,” so please come share a funny story and dress casual with bright, bold colors in her honor. She would also like donations to be made to either Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library or Project New Hope in lieu of flowers.
