In Memory of Kitty Houghton

Kitty HoughtonAs most of you know Kitty was killed January 27th. We’ve lost such a special friend and member. After joining our group in 2006, there were few fly-outs that she didn’t attend. But more than what Kitty shared with us she gave to the world of women in aviation. She was tireless in organizing 99s chapters in Nepal, India, France, Germany and she was going to Ghana this summer to help young women in aviation. Please join all of us at her memorial March 3rd, 2:00, San Rafael Christian Science Church, 1618 Fifth Ave., San Rafael.

Thank you for speaking out on your feelings about the loss of Kitty. There is no place in my mind or heart to try and understand what happened. I’ve contacted the A.E. Scholarship board to see if our contributions to a scholarship could be dedicated to an International member in Kitty’s name. They are meeting at the end of March and will get back to me. In the meantime hold onto your checks until we know where to send them. Just amongst our members we’ve raised $1000. Many other people from other chapters feel the same. It will be a worthy gesture to all that Kitty gave to the world.

BLUE SKIES KITTY, we will miss you.
