Pamelia Townsend Mooers

October 13, 1926 — October 7, 2022

CARIBOU - Pamelia Townsend Mooers, 95, passed away on October 7, 2022, with her daughters by her side. Loved by her family and many friends, Pam was born in Dyer Brook on October 13, 1926, the daughter of the late Lester and Tressa (Rockwell) Townsend. She was raised in Patten where she graduated as valedictorian from Patten Academy. She then graduated from her beloved University of Maine in 1949 where she met her late husband, Phil.

After earning her degree, she became a teacher — first at Good Will-Hinckley and later in the Caribou Public School System. Pam was a caring member of the community, serving in leadership roles for several organizations. For many years, she served on the St. Luke’s Episocpal Church Altar Guild. Pam enjoyed supporting community causes, including through her role as president and secretary of the Caribou Day Extension. She tutored through the Caribou Adult Learning Center, creating lasting friendships with her students, and was an avid member of the Red Hat Ladies.

Her impeccable memory and curious mind were matched by a passion for travel and learning, a love of reading, line dancing with friends, and maintaining a keen sense of style. Her life was marked by a number of incredible experiences that she loved sharing with her family — such as her time plane spotting during World War II, skating on frozen rivers, riding in pedicabs through the streets of London, and in pony carts in Ireland.  

She especially enjoyed spending many birthdays, holidays, and special occasions with her family at Mooers Farm, as well as days together at the family camp on Madawaska Lake. The foundation and core of her family, she was a bright spirit with a perceptive sense of humor.

Pam was predeceased by her husband, Philip Mooers. She is survived by her three daughters and their families: Cynthia Noyes and husband Kimber of Woodland, Linda Butler and husband Michael of Caribou, and Sandra Bouchard and husband Mark of Caribou; her grandchildren Tristan Noyes and wife Katherine, Brandon Bouchard, Ryan Bouchard, Justin Bouchard, Jonathan Noyes, Lucas Butler and wife Esther, and Shannon Butler and partner Shawn Callahan; her two great-grandchildren Bentley Noyes and Millicent Butler; her brother, Thurston Townsend and his late wife Madelyn, and her nieces and nephew. Pam’s family thanks the staff at Cary Medical Center and Professional Home Nursing for all of their support.
