Marlene Moulen

BIDDEFORD — Marlene Mary Moulen went to be with our loving Lord on Feb. 3, 2021.

She was born on Nov. 5, 1942, in Saco, Maine, the daughter of Bethena Leona Wakefield and Frank Carl Moulen Sr., and the sister of Frank Carl Moulin Jr. Ms. Moulen held a Master’s Degree in Social Work and was a dedicated Licensed Practical Nurse of 29 years. She performed nine years at the former Webber Hospital in Biddeford and20 years at Maine Med in Portland, with 10 of those years in the Burn Unit. She never let anyone die alone and held their hand.

In the 19 years of her retirement, she dedicated herself to cleaning the former MERC plant, the mills, businesses on Main Street, the apartment building where she resided at for 17 years, accepting no pay. In her mid-70s, she continued to assist the Main Street businesses by shoveling and raking snow off roofs, buildings, sidewalks and always shoveling out the fire hydrants. Her work in helping so many others, will never be forgotten. She enjoyed scrapbooking the history of Biddeford and Saco, for over 20 years, to one day donate to the local historical societies for their use. She became a sounding board/mentor to many UNE students whom moved into her building. They became wonderful friends of hers and many went on to become amazing doctors, nurses and more. Ms. Moulen was very charitable, donating most of her money to churches, other organizations, the homeless, anyone who needed anything and volunteering her time to local bookstores and specifically to Preble Street in Portland. Marlene never asked for anything in return, nor wanted any recognition. A humble, beautiful human being, doing the Lords work.

Ms. Moulen is survived by: her brother, Frank C. Moulin Jr.; a niece, Karen Rose; a great-niece, Andrea Rose; two great nephews; many cousins; and her beloved kitties, Gucci and Denali.

Ms. Moulen was preceded in death by her parents, Bethena “Wakefield” Moulen and Frank Carl Moulen Sr.

Ms. Moulen chose to become an antatomical donor to the University of New England for research, therefore, church services at the Holy Trinity Church in Saco will be at a later date.
