Charlene Ludwig Moody 80 passed away peacefully from complication of dementia on Wednesday, April 29th, 2020.

Charlene was the daughter of Charles and Lois Ludwig of Washington, Maine. Charlene spent much of her childhood with her grandparents, Burleigh and Lula Turner, on their farm in South Liberty. She always spoke fondly of that time of her life.

Charlene went to a one room school house in Washington where her grandmother, Gertrude Ludwig, was the school teacher. She would often stay after school to help her grandmother fill the wood stove and walk home with her. She attended high school in Union, Maine.

Charlene married Ronald Moody of Appleton, Maine and they settled into a home in Washington Village where they raised 3 children. Children from the village often gathered on the Moody lawn to play softball or hide-and-seek at night. Charlene was involved in many local organizations including being a founding member of the Washington Hill and Gully Riders Snowmobile Club.

Charlene loved to cook and garden. Her favorite thing to do was to spend time at the camp she and her husband Ronald built on Washington Pond. She loved hosting gatherings for family and friends. Many a great time was had at camp! Charlene also loved holidays. She celebrated every holiday by decorating her home and cooking meals for her family. She especially loved Halloween, she would decorate the house and pack more than 100 bags of candy for all the trick-or-treaters, often dressing in a costume to greet the children.
Charlene was known for her happy disposition and her spunky nature, right up to the end of her life she dressed very stylishly and never left the house without a necklace, sunglasses’ that matched her outfit and lipstick. She loved clothes and liked to dress in the latest fashions. No old lady clothes for her! Known as Nana by her grandchildren who she loved dearly, she took great pride in their accomplishments. She also loved to embarrass them with stories and jokes. Charlene lived most of her life in Washington, but also lived in Camden and Belfast where she made many friends.

She was preceded by her husband, Ronald, her brother, Stephen Ludwig of Gray, Maine and many other wonderful family and friends.

Charlene is survived by her daughter Rosemary and her husband Jimmy Plourde of Millinocket, Maine. Her daughter Roxanne Eggen and her husband Fred, her son Alan Moody and his wife Kathy of Whitefield, NH. Her grandchildren Holly Millay Benedict of Texas, Joseph Moody of Hope, George Millay of Windsor, Melinda Eggen Ferrazza of Rockport, Kimberly Eggen Ward of Thorndike, Amie Wyman Misch of Texas and Nate Wyman of Jefferson, as well as 9 great- grandchildren and 1 great-great-grandchild. Her sister-in-law’s Vanessa Moody Graves of Rockport and Janice Ludwig of Gray and many nieces and nephews.

Charlene's spirit and love will be greatly missed!

The family would like to send a heartfelt thank you to the compassionate staff at Woodland Memory Care of Rockland and Beacon Hospice.

A celebration of Charlene’s life will be held later in the summer at her beloved camp in Washington.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Washington Historical Society, PO Box 333, Washington, ME 04574.

Arrangements are entrusted to the care of Hall Funeral Homes and Cremation Services, 949 Main Street, Waldoboro. Condolences may be shared with the family at Charlene’s Book of Memories at

My first memory is that of being the flower girl at Charlene and Ronnie's wedding . What a beautiful couple! Her ready smile stands out in all the connections from then on. One summer I spent the days caring for Rosemary, Roxanne, and baby Alan while Charlene worked outside the home, blueberry raking! I admired her hard work in the sun while I got to play with my little cousins and find creative ways to keep Lou from cooking the potatoes early in the morning! - JoAnne Ludwig Shuman
