WELLS, ME - Barbara A. (Houchin) Poehler, 78, completed her circle of life Wednesday, March 29, 2023. Barbara grew up in Ottawa, IL where she was the daughter of Walter and Helen Houchin. She was the eldest of three daughters, Sharon Eirhart and Linda Heather.
Barbara always dreamed of being a librarian, however changed her career path after having children to become a full charge bookkeeper and then office manager.
Barbara’s favorite past times included Barry Manilow concerts, collecting porcelain dolls and an occasional trip to the local casino. Her ideal day would consist of having a Diet Coke with her cat Lucky on her lap while watching the Big Bang Theory. Barbara was very proud of her Rose of Sharon and lilac bushes in her front yard. She would often take pictures and send to her family for them to enjoy.
Barbara is survived by her daughter Melissa McCullough and her husband Joel of Denver, NC, son Richard J Morton Jr. of Wells, ME, and daughter Michele Tremblay and her husband Paul of Bridgton, ME. Barbara’s greatest gift was being a grandmother and great-grandmother. She leaves her granddaughter Danielle Barbrick and her son Toby, granddaughter Rebecca Tremblay and her fiancé Aaron Babb with sons Alexander and Benjamin and daughter Delilah, and grandson Sean Tremblay and wife Miranda Sanville.
