Gail Sigford



WASP Gail Sigford passed away on May 2, 2007 after loosing a battle with stomach cancer.

Given the opportunity to write about her life in the 44-W-10 "The Lost Last Class of Avenger Field," published in 1996, Gail wrote just a few words, short and sweet:

"Have lived, low these many decades, a quiet, pleasant miscellaneous life in the Pacific Northwest, and intend to continue on and on."

A talented artist, Gail drew the cartoon at right for the 44-W-10 class book. It remains a shining example of the wonderful sense of humor of a young lady pilot who successfully completed training and earned her silver wings.

To Gail, being a WASP was one of the most significant things she ever did.
