In Memory Of Our Poets

Wimberly Carter (Mohos) (1943-2012) - Class Of 1961

Wimberly Carter (Mohos) (1943-2012)


Wimberly Carter Mohos of Kinnelon NJ, native of Montgomery and Ozark AL, passed away two months short of her 69th birthday on September 23 2012.

After Sidney Lanier High School where her friends knew her as Sister (of Helen "Ceci" Carter) Wimberly studied cello at the University of Alabama and at the Manhattan School of Music, and performed in the American Symphony Orchestra under Leopold Stokowski.

She married Istvan Mohos violinist in 1970 and gave birth to son Quentin in 1973 while the couple served as Artists in Residence at Concord College Athens WV. In 1980 the family returned to the New York area so Wimberly could get a renal transplant of her sister's kidney. Wimberly then went back for her Master of Computer Science degree at Fairleigh Dickinson University, and worked at Lucent (Bell Labs) as a computer specialist until her retirement in 2001.

Bright light, cherished friend, touchstone of courage and grace - though no longer among us, Wimberly lives in our hearts, in our memories, in the dreams of all who were privileged to know her.

Donations in Wimberly's memory to the Lupus Foundation of America www.lupus.org would be greatly appreciated

I was a member of the "Trebelettes" singing group with Wimberly, our alto.  For several

years we sang at Hi-Y and Tri-Hi-Y functions and other events.  We  had a wonderful time

being together practicing and performing.   She was musically trained and contributed greatly

to the group.  Always very smart  and talented, she was a lovely person.

I an blessed to have known her,

Wimberly was such a wonderful person.  She and her sister, Helen, were an integral part of my love of music.  I studied violin with their mother, and their talent was undeniable.  Mine was never in the same category as theirs, but I did love playing in the orchestra with them. "Sister"'s mother was especially kind to me, and she would take her daughters and me horse back riding in those years when we were in the "too old for dolls and too young for dates" stage of our development.  I remember how gentle Wimberly was, and so kind to everyone.  She was a delight to all of us who shared a part of her life.
