PORTLAND - Carol Ann Malia, 83, passed away peacefully listening to her Irish music on March 12, 2019.

She was born in April of 1935, in Portland, the daughter of the late John and Gladys (Sinclair) Malia, Sr.

Carol served as President and Vice President of the Telephone Pioneers Life Member Club as well as The Salvation Army Women's Auxiliary. She was also served as a chairperson of the yearly Fabric Fair Fundraiser.

Carol had a passion for painting, cross stitch and sewing. Carol traveled extensively through Europe which gave her the opportunities to visit her pen pal, Jean, whom she was a pen pal with since age 11.

She is survived by her nieces and nephews, Carol Wallace and Charles "Chuck" Kirk, Janet Malia-Descoteaux and Patrick Malia and their families; grandnieces and nephews, Alex, Matt, Libby, Emmy, Danielle, and John, who will miss their Aunt Ta-Ta.
