In Memoriam: Carmenita Moore|
Carmenita Moore, a member of the Database Software group in the
Computing Division, died on Sunday, March 21, after a long battle with cancer.
An employee of 18 years, Moore spent most of her career
working on data acquisition systems for the fixed target
experiments and more recently on SAM database development
for Run II. While working on the data acquisition systems,
Moore served as an online liaison. "She was the main interface
between the Computing Division and designated fixed target
experiments," said Margaret Votava, a member of the Computing
Division who worked closely with Moore. "She was extremely
conscientious and very interested in helping the experiments."
Eileen Berman, of the Computing Division, described Moore as
a very pleasant and positive person. "She was one of the most
positive people I had ever met. She was always willing to help,"
Moore, who started as a summer intern at Fermilab in 1982,
dedicated a lot of her time to working with students and served
as a mentor in the Graduate Engineering for Minorities program
and the Summer Internships in Science and Technology for Minority
Students program. "She was very strong in mentoring other students.
Every year kids would come through," Votava said. Moore was a very
active member of her church and a foster parent to two young children.
