NORTON -- Camilla C. (Chickering) Moore, 63, of Norton died on Saturday, Dec. 11, 2004 at her home surrounded by the loving care and support of her family. She was the beloved wife of H. Carlton Moore, former minister of the Unitarian Church in Norton. They had been married for the past 36 years.

Born in Belmont, Mass., on April 4, 1941, she was a loving daughter of the late Lewis and Elma (Hill) Chickering.

Camilla was educated in the Belmont schools and went on to become a graduate of Lesley College in Cambridge.

Upon graduating from college in 1963, she joined the Peace Corps, and taught English as a second language in Ethiopia for two years. She then returned home to teach fifth grade in the town of Acton school system for several years before semi-retiring to raise her loving family.

She then returned to teaching and worked as a special education teacher at the Taylor School in Foxboro. Her last place of work was the Doolittle Home in Foxboro, where she served as activity director before retiring in January of this year due to illness.

She was a member of the Unitarian Church in Norton, where she also belonged to the parish committee. She was a member of the board of directors at the Daggett-Crandall Newcomb Home in Norton.

A lover of gardening, she was a member of the Chartley Garden Club.

She was a member of the National Certification Council for Activity Professionals.

Besides gardening, she enjoyed baking, and was an avid Red Sox and Patriots fan. She treasured times spent with her loving family. She had a special fondness in her heart for the elderly and their needs.

She had lived in Norton for the past 36 years, and was formerly of Belmont.

Besides her loving husband, she is survived by her devoted daughters, Emily C. Minihane and her husband James S. of Delaware, Rebecca M. Raymond and her husband David J. of Franklin, and Meredith M. Owens and her husband James E. of North Attleboro; dear sister of Morgan Chickering of Brookline; her cherished grandchildren, Lillian M. Minihane and newborn Charlotte Camilla Minihane, both of Delaware; and several nieces and nephews.

Our debt to Bill Moyers Our debt to Bill Moyers
Former Peace Corps Deputy Director Bill Moyers leaves PBS next week to begin writing his memoir of Lyndon Baines Johnson. Read what Moyers says about journalism under fire, the value of a free press, and the yearning for democracy. "We have got to nurture the spirit of independent journalism in this country," he warns, "or we'll not save capitalism from its own excesses, and we'll not save democracy from its own inertia."

Is Gaddi Leaving? Is Gaddi Leaving?
Rumors are swirling that Peace Corps Director Vasquez may be leaving the administration. We think Director Vasquez has been doing a good job and if he decides to stay to the end of the administration, he could possibly have the same sort of impact as a Loret Ruppe Miller. If Vasquez has decided to leave, then Bob Taft, Peter McPherson, Chris Shays, or Jody Olsen would be good candidates to run the agency. Latest: For the record, Peace Corps has no comment on the rumors.
