In memoriam: Kasia Kurek-Polk

Kasia Kurek-Polk

It is with heavy heart that we announce the tragic news that our colleague Kasia Kurek-Polk suddenly and unexpectedly lost her life on Monday evening, March 15. Kasia and her husband had stopped their car to help another driver, and a third car crashed into the stopped vehicles. Kasia did not survive her injuries.

Those of you who interacted with and knew Kasia know the extent of her kindness as well as the extent to which she always strived to serve and be helpful. She was a highly valued member of our Fermilab team and the Accelerator Division and will be sorely missed.

Visitation will be held Sunday, March 21, and the funeral will take place on Monday, March 22. Further information is available at
