About Me

 Hi 

 My name is Evelyn Moore (nee Robertson) I live in Fort Wayne Indiana USA.

 I lived in Dunoon for many years, I  was married in Dunoon High Kirk (old Parish Church), Kirk Street,  the church on top of the hill facing Dunoon Pier in 1978. My mothers name is Joan Robertson she was a member of the country dance club in Dunoon, my sister is Marie Johnston she was married to Ian Jonston, Ian lived with the Allison's that owned the hotel, when Ian"s parents both died, the Allison's took Ian in to live with them. I worked in Holms hair dresser salon on the water front for June and Grant Taylor when I was a teenager, and a few years later I worked in Duncluther Childrens home.  I have 3 children, and 7 grand children now, and we love every one of them. My Husband Michael  was a navy sailor deployed on the USS Holland in the late seventies. I received the gift of life, and a second chance, a lung Transplant around Thanksgiving of 2005 (11-20-2005), it saved my life as I was very sick. I have been blessed to have a second chance in life to be with my family, I am proud of all of them and love them all so much, they are my strength my support, and my reason to keep going, they are my rock. I am doing good right now. but the past 15 years life has not been easy for all of us due to me being sick back then, but I do believe that good things can come out of some thing bad, as we are a much stronger family now (Prosapia Primoris ) which means in Latin Family First. I am a fighter and a surviver, I guess that"s the 100% Scottish in me, well the fighter part anyway. I used to have many friends in Dunnon but through the years we lost touch, some times I wonder where they are now. I miss Dunoon and the old good times, and the fun we used to have back  in the mid seventies, I think of those times often, if I could travel back through time, I would go back and have some fun again, to be with my friends, and maybe if I could  I would change a few things, or maybe I won't. It still was the best days ever. :)

Take Care All.

About Me

I was born in Struan Lodge on December 13th. 1943!  My parents who are now deceased, were John and Sarah Gilmour.  My father made the first advertising movie of Dunoon while my Uncle, Charles Black was Provost.  My grandparents were the Johnstones of Dunloskin.  My Uncle, James Johnstone Sr. still resides at Dunloskin. 

 

I live in Nashville, NC with my husband of 23 years, retired Navy Commander Richard L. Moore.  I met and married my husband while he was on active duty and I was a contractor working as an Engineering Aide for Johns Hopkins University/Applied Physics Laboratory at White Sands Missile Range, NM.  Although kids of today take space travel for granted, I witnessed the STS-2 (the second shuttle flown) land in New Mexico - chaser planes brought them right out of the sky in front of me!  You could hear the huge sigh of relief!   At a later date I talked to the shuttle pilots on my head-set while I was working at Range Control Center (RCC) as they were flying over our area!   I was also working in RCC preparing to test a missile that fateful day when the Space Shuttle exploded shortly after take-off killing everyone on board.  Being the only female in the RCC area at that time, it was utterly incredible to witness every man in that room crying out in shock, bursting in to tears along with me.  It was a shockingly sad moment in history that I will never forget. 

 

Who would have thought that a young woman from Dunoon would end up taking part in such Historic Scientific events as the Space program.  I was a team leader in the first Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) program, and when the flight was shown on TV all around the world, my Uncle at 'Dunloskin' wondered if I knew anything about it.   Back then, for Security purposes, I couldn't talk about my work.  Little did he know that just weeks earlier I had sat in a mobile tech truck at 2 a.m. on the top of a mountain in the desert observing the testing of the heat plume coming out of an Aries Rocket before lift-off!   I was also photographed (by the Public Affairs Office of the Army) for publicity purposes, while standing on top of the Gantry at the top of the Aries Rocket, showing the payload that JHU/APL had developed for one of the PODS.  The design Engineer and the Field Engineer were propping me up while I had to fake a smile as I looked down at the photographer far below!    As the Assistant Test Conductor for a program for the Marines, I wrote the test plan for the first EXDRONE Missile test which later developed in to the Stealth Missile that was used in the Gulf War.   After we retired, on one of our road trips, my husband and I drove to Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico and watched those beautiful black Delta shaped planes make test runs.  It gave me chills to think back and recall testing a smaller version of it just a few years earlier.

 

That was a LONG time ago -  you probably didn't want this much information but I only gave a little bit!   I live a relatively quiet life now, breeding beautiful AKC purebred Chihuahuas.  My website is:  www.DemetrisDemiChihuahuas.com and if you visit me there you can see the beautiful coun tryside where I live and my canines!
