St. Louis Aviation Community Mourns the Loss of Delia Greer, Dear Lady of the Skies

It is with great sadness that I announce the death of Delia Greer on Monday, 23 July, 2012, in her home.  Delia was not known to have any medical issues so her death is quite unexpected. Delia had been a member of the Ninety-Nines for nearly 30 years and was quite active in local Ninety-Nine events.  She had been a volunteer at Wings of Hope since 1999 and had participated in several missions to post-Katrina New Orleans as well as to Haiti and to Central and South America.  Also, at Wings of Hope, she was the chief flight nurse of the Medical Air Transport that transports patients to medical facilities throughout the Midwest.  Two weeks ago at the Ninety-Nines International Annual Conference in Providence, RI, Delia Greer and Jean Murry received the Ninety Nines Award for Humanitarian Service for their work with Wings of Hope.  Delia was also a member of the Commemorative Air Force at St. Charles County Airport (Smartt Field), the Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum and the Gateway Chapter of Missouri Pilots Association.
