ROCKPORT – Barbara A. Pruitt, 91, died peacefully, Friday, July 5, 2019 at the Sussman Hospice House in Rockport.

Born in Eagle Island, April 4, 1928, she was the daughter of Charles and Minnie Allen. Barbara grew up at Marshall Point Lighthouse where her father was the keeper. It was here that she learned to play piano as her parents would sit her down in front of one in her highchair. With no television to watch, she was self-taught, playing everything from Rag Time to Blues without being able to read a note.

A hard worker her entire life, Barbara was employed for over 35 years with Key Bank in Rockland. She rose through the ranks, eventually retiring as Vice President of that branch.

Always with a love of animals, she has a special place in her heart for her kitty, ‘Mackie’ who was often seen ‘helping’ her play the piano. The two were inseparable. Barbara was kind and loving and enjoyed spending time with her many friends in Rockport. She loved a good conversation, and even later in life, she conversed daily with her daughter-in-law through email and phone conversations. She will be sadly missed by all who loved her.

Barbara was predeceased by three husband, James ‘Jimmy’ Moulaison, David Day and Ralph Pruitt; her sons, Raymond Moulaison and Timothy Moulaison; as well as a grandson who was just two years old, M.J. Moulaison. She is survived by her daughter-in-law and special friend, Cathy Moulaison Charak and her husband Earl.

At Barbara’s request, no services will be held. She will be laid to rest beside her late husband, Ralph Pruitt.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to either, PAWS Animal Adoption, P.O. Box 707, Rockport, ME 04856, Marshall Point Lighthouse Museum, P.O. Box 247, Port Clyde, ME 04855; or Rockport Library Foundation, P.O. Box 204, Rockport, ME 04856.

Arrangements are in the care of Burpee, Carpenter & Hutchins Funeral Home, 110 Limerock Street, Rockland.
