MARCIA G. CECIL-CARTER
World Trade Center
NAVY TOUGH, SOFT AT HEART
Do not be fooled by the pale pink roses Marcia Cecil-Carter holds in her Feb. 16, 2000, wedding picture. "She was tough as nails," her husband, Ondre Carter, said proudly.
She had to be, starting out as a 17-year-old mother in Chicago, and joining the Navy to make it on her own. After 3 1/2 years as a chef for naval officers, she moved on and up -- to Carr Futures, a securities company on the 92nd floor of 1 World Trade Center.
Mr. Carter was going to the laundry when their paths crossed on his mother's street in Brooklyn five years ago. "Our eyes met, and I made a big excuse to go to the grocery store to follow her," he recalled. Their son Devonte is 4 now.
Ms. Cecil-Carter, 34, was upset when she learned this year that her daughter, Amber, was having a baby at 17. But she melted when she saw her baby grandson for the first time -- two days before the terrorist attacks. "Tough as nails," her husband said, "but thesoftest heart in the world."
