September 19: One of our long-time members, Jean Prior, has flown to New Horizons.
Bruce Prior has told us that “Jean’s long struggle with cancer ended in the early morning hours of Friday 19 September. She passed away peacefully at 0145. It was her wish that there be no service or family-sponsored celebration of life. Thanks for all your support during this difficult time.”
We 99s will be thinking of Jean at our West Canada Section meeting in Penticton on September 26 – 28 where we will silent-auction a beautiful collection of winter toques that Jean knit for us during the past year. She wished the proceeds to go towards the West Canada Section scholarship.
The toques are all different, and are in a traditional design: elaborate cables, intricate honeycombs, thick, and most are a creamy white; two are bright colors. Superb handwork.
Jean was so very sorry that she wouldn’t be there with us. As she emailed to Clare just after our 99s fly-out to Texada Island in August, “You gals rock … Love and long distance hugs . . . with long arms!”
I know we will all miss Jean for her warmth, encouragement and mentorship. But most of all for leading us
to be a dedicated and proud Ninety-Nine.
Jean, we love you. You are gone but never forgotten.

August: The BC Coast 99s had a booth at the Chilliwack Flight Fest this year. Here are some pictures of the amazing aerobatic acts Catherine and Clare enjoyed!
