Susanne Muratori (1933-2018)

Sad news for members of the former Track Chamber (TC), Experimental Facilities (EF) and Accelerator Technology (AT) divisions.

Susanne Muratori joined the adventure of the formative years of CERN in 1955, following her studies at the École d'Interprètes. She was first recruited by the Purchasing Office and later moved to the PS division. She joined the then newly created Track Chamber division (previously a group within the PS division) in 1961.  She soon became the heart and soul of secretarial administration for the three above-mentioned successive divisions. Before retirement, she joined the CERN Directorate as an administrative personal assistant.

Colleagues at CERN, as well as numerous visiting scientists, will remember Susanne for her great professionalism, her constant concern for other people and the warm and humorous way in which she tackled and solved problems, private or work-related.

Susanne will be fondly remembered as an intelligent, profoundly human and exceptional “Cernoise”.

Her passion for classical music led to the foundation of the CERN Music Club in collaboration with the former CERN Director-General Victor Weisskopf.

Our sincere condolences go to her husband Giovanni and her son Bruno and family.
