NOBLEBORO — Sharon Elaine Moody, 68, of Nobleboro, passed away unexpectedly on Nov. 15, 2022.

She was born in Rockland on Feb. 9, 1954, the daughter of Richard and Christine Glidden of Waldoboro.

Sharon graduated from the Medomak Valley High School Class of 1972. She graduated from the University of Maine Gorham in 1976 with a BS degree in elementary education. Sharon taught kindergarten, second and third grade in the SAD 40 system at Miller School and Warren Elementary for approximately 19 years. She took a few years off to raise her family, then retired from teaching in 2003 to be a stay-at-home mom.

Sharon married Mark Alvah Moody Sr. on April 16, 1983, together they raised their family in their home in Nobleboro.

Sharon’s love of children was evident in her everyday living. She was a sought-after schoolteacher, making a difference in many children’s lives. It was not unusual for her to buy coats, boots, hats or mittens for any of her students in need. You will still find books at Miller grade school with her name in them that she left behind upon her retirement.

She was a loved mother, grandmother, aunt and great-aunt to many children. The children always gravitated to her at any family gathering.

Sharon attended Safe Harbor Church in Waldoboro.

Sharon loved gardening; she could be seen many days out watering the flowers around her home. She loved family get-togethers where she shared her love of cooking.

Besides her parents, Sharon is survived by her husband of 39 years, Mark; daughter Shelly Ann; son Mark Jr. and his wife Calyn, and grandsons Wilder and Lander Moody; her brother Ronald Glidden and his wife Emily; niece Shawna Kurr, her husband Jeremy and their children Skylar and Sidney; nephew Michael Wile; niece Hanna Wile; niece Kara Wieske and her son Amari; sister-in-law Charlene Moody Ward and her husband Ron; nephew Jeff Ward and his wife Holly and children Maddie and Josh; niece Kim Ward Libby and her husband Jared and children Paige, Lillia and Rosilla; nephew Michael Ward and his wife Lindsey and children Grace, Claire, Gabe and Bennie; nephew Greg Ward and his wife Krystina and children Abi, Izi and Obi; niece Jennifer and her fiancé Troy Turner and children, Adayla, Aramae and Zeke; her brother-in-law Matthew Moody, his wife Bonnie, nephews Max, Sam Slavik and niece Sofia; aunts Virginia Jewett, Laura Gray, Elinor Eaton and husband Milton; and uncle David Glidden and wife Sharon. She is also survived by her close friend Georgia Hodgkins.

Sharon was a loving and wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, sister, sister-in-law, aunt, niece, cousin and friend to many. She will be missed; a hole has been left in many hearts.

Visiting hours will be Sunday, Nov. 27, from 3-5 p.m. at Hall’s Funeral Home, 949 Main St., Waldoboro, Maine.
