In memoriam: Chivas Makaroplos

Longtime Fermilab friend and perhaps the most familiar face at the Users Center, Chivas Makaroplos passed away on Saturday, Oct. 18, after her long battle with cancer. Makaroplos, who tended bar at the Users Center and cooked for Chez Leon, enjoyed being a part of Fermilab and considered everyone at the lab as her family.

Visiting hours for Makaroplos will be held at Moss Family Funeral Home, 209 South Batavia Avenue in Batavia, on Thursday, Oct. 23, from 4-8 p.m. An after-service gathering will be held at the Fermilab Users Center. All are invited to attend to honor Chivas’ life.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the American Cancer Society.
