Pauline L. (Dunbar) Moody


Pauline L. (Dunbar) Moody, age 83, of Southwest Harbor, died peacefully on June 12, 2020, surrounded by her family. She was born Nov. 9, 1936, in Bar Harbor to John and Dorothy Dunbar. She married the love of her life, Nick Moody, in February of 1957. He preceded her in death in 2014.

When their daughters were young, Pauline learned cake decorating. She made the most beautiful, creative cakes for every birthday. One time she made Nick an 18-wheeler! She always made the best tuna sandwiches; just ask Lynne’s friends. Pauline enjoyed snowmobiling, skiing and traveling around the country with her family, who were her pride and joy.

She will be remembered as a kind, caring woman who brought a smile to everyone she met. She was an amazing wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, sister and friend. She was loved by many and will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

Pauline is survived by daughter, Cheryl Moody, and fiancé, Jack Gilley; daughter, Lynne MacKenzie, and son-in-law, Colin; grandsons, Nick Sayre, Adam Sayre and wife, Morgan Gilman; granddaughters, Morgan MacKenzie and Bailey MacKenzie; great-grandchildren, Eli and Savannah Sayre; sisters, Gertrude Gascon, Joyce Kenney and brother-in-law, Jim; brother, Guy Dunbar and sister-in-law, Paula; sisters-in-law, Carolyn Dunbar, Peggy Dunbar and Kathy Moody; many special nieces and nephews, special cousins and friends.

She asked that this be short and not “too mushy.” We tried our best, Mum!

A private family graveside service will be held at a later date. Online condolences may be offered to the family at
