Nancy Kelley Jensen, 70, departed the fix on February 12, 2014 after losing a year-long battle with cancer (but not before sneaking in some great bucket list items.) She had been a private pilot since 1976 and joined the 99s in 1977, becoming a life member after serving as Greater Seattle Chapter chairman then Northwest Section governor. She loved to serve her 99s and was a four-time winner of her chapter’s achievement award.
Home for the past 32 years has been a private airstrip southeast of Seattle, where she skillfully flew her Cessna 180 taildragger. She was also an active member of six other flying associations. Nancy flew in several Petticoat Derbies, as copilot in the Palms to Pines Race and won the Kiernan Aviation Festival Mystery Derby with her 49½ Tom. She enjoyed airplane camping in Idaho, Alaska and Canada with Tom.
Nancy has a BS in education and is a busy volunteer for the Flying Companion Seminar, Fear of Flying Clinic, EAA Young Eagles and other aviation education activities including Big World Flight for Education. She loved being around her two grown children and adores her six grandchildren.
