It is with great sadness that I announce the death of Rosemary Chennault Simrall, the youngest child of the General by his first wife.  Rosemary fell two weeks ago and broke her upper leg.  She then contracted pneumonia while recovering.  Rosemary was a true Chennault- I remember just a few years ago, when she was about 80ish, watching her wave from the rear seat of a (converted) P-51 Mustang as it took off for a ride along that included light aerobatics. http://www.thenewsstar.com/article/20130825/NEWS01/308250056/Sim rall-daughter-Chennault-dies?nclick_check=1

Widow of AVG pilot J. R. Rossi
What a grand and lovely lady she was, and the world is diminished by her loss. Heaven is enhanced. May she rest in peace with the rest of our heroes.
