A family remembrance is planned for the spring. Marilyn 'Dee' Gould July 13, Dec. A true friend and mother to everyone who passed through her door, Dee will always be remembered as a woman who opened her heart and her home to all who knew her.
While attending the University of Pennsylvania and earning her bachelor's degree in education, she met Charles S. Gould, a young, dashing merchant mariner on a blind date arranged by her Alpha Chi Omega sorority sister. Dee taught kindergarten and Charlie worked towards his master's degree at Rutgers University. In , Charlie, a sales representative at Dupont Chemical, was transferred to Maine and they settled there after a brief stint in Texas.

Later in , she transferred to Maine Medical Center where, in addition to her duties in the psychiatric unit, she did consultations in the ER and burn units.

Mental illness represents great challenges, but with understanding comes acceptance. After her retirement in , she turned her attention and efforts to her family and friends, keeping up a long-standing Gould family tradition called 'Augustfest,' a family reunion held in their home for the past 30 years or so.
