Flown West: Hattie Stone

The Pacific Coast Air Museum is grieved to announce that our friend and benefactor Hattie Stone passed away on Monday, December 23, 2013. She was 95.

A formal memorial for Hattie was held at the Santa Rosa Veterans Memorial Building on Thursday, February 27. Approximately 200 people were there to pay their respects, and formal presentations were made by representatives from AMVETS Post 40, the Navy WAVES, American Legion Post 21, and the Pacific Coast Air Museum. Military Honors were performed by AMVETS Post 40. A planned flyover by the PCAM T-28 had to be cancelled because of the weather.

Hattie's contribution to the Sonoma County community and the Pacific Coast Air Museum cannot be overestimated. A U.S. Navy veteran, she contributed time, effort, money, and her incomparable spirit to many veteran-related organizations. PCAM was among her favorites. The PCAM Hattie Stone Memorial Building Fund is named after her. Much of the money she donated made it possible for us to create the F-15 "First Responder" exhibit in 2011, which did a lot to raise the prestige of the Museum in the eyes of the public, the community of museums, and the military.

Rest in peace, Hattie.
