Miriam E. Mulherin, 85

FRYEBURG — Miriam Elizabeth Mulherin, 85, passed away Monday, June 3, 2013, after a brief illness. During her last days, she was at home, surrounded by her loving family.

She was born on Feb. 4, 1928, in Fryeburg Harbor, the daughter of Lena and Holmes Gould. Although Fryeburg was her home for 85 years, she had spent the last 14 winters in Sun City Center, Fla. Pete and Miriam started Pete's Garage in North Fryeburg in 1968. They worked side by side to build a family business which is still actively run by family members.

Miriam had many interests: gardening, handcrafts, reading, hunting, fishing, and she loved to cook, especially for her large family. She loved all animals, especially her cat Toby.

She is survived by her husband of 70 years, Roland "Pete" Mulherin; daughters Bette Tibbetts and her husband John, Dorothy Johnson and her husband Bob, Alice Smith and her husband Steven; her son Paul Mulherin and his wife Brenda; and her son-in-law Fred Goss. She was predeceased by a daughter Judith Goss. She was very proud of her nine grandchildren, and loved being a great-grandmother to their children.

There will be no calling hours. Services will be held on Thursday, June 6, 2013, at 11:00 a.m. at the North Fryeburg Community Chapel, followed by refreshments and a time to share memories.

The family requests that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the North Fryeburg Community Chapel, PO Box 204, Fryeburg, ME 04037. Arrangements are made with Wood Funeral Home, Fryeburg. Online condolences may be expressed to the family at www.woodfuneralhome.org
