BARRE — Lois Virginia Whitmore Moulton, 95, died Wednesday, Dec. 25, 2013, at Lincoln House in Barre.
She was born on July 6, 1918, to Charles F. and Sara (Steans) Whitmore in Upper Montvale, N.J., but grew up in Mifflinburg and Lewisburg, Pa., and graduated from Lewisburg High School in 1935. She attended Maryville College in Tennessee and then the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing, graduating in 1941 as a registered nurse. She married William Monroe Moulton on March 27, 1943. During their married life, they lived in six states and several countries, including Mexico, Turkey and Lebanon. They divorced in 1967.
In 1966, she moved to Brattleboro, where she remained until recent years. While in Brattleboro, she returned to nursing and worked for about 20 years at the Brattleboro Memorial Hospital and the Brattleboro Retreat. Starting in the 1930s, she continued a lifelong love of listening to the Metropolitan Opera Saturday afternoon live broadcasts. She also pursued a late-blooming interest in photography and was active in the Brattleboro Camera Club for several decades. Some of her photos were published by Vermont Life.
She leaves behind five children: William Moulton and his wife, Kathie, in Plainfield, Vt.; Lawrence Moulton and his wife, Margaret, in Lopez Island, Wash., and their two sons, Eric and Craig; Robert Moulton and his wife, Rebecca, in Ashuelot, N.H.; Allen Moulton and his wife, Marcie, in Johnson, Vt., and his ex-wife, Carla Van Hoy, and son, Nathan; and Sara Moulton and her husband, David Tanner, in Montpelier, Vt.
There will be no calling hours. A private graveside service will be held at the convenience of the family in the spring in Hope Cemetery in Barre.
Memorial contributions may be made to Brooks Memorial Library, 224 Main St., Brattleboro, VT 05301.
Arrangements are in the care of the Pruneau-Polli Funeral Home, 58 Summer St., Barre, Vt.
