Almeda Ashcraft

Birth: 1916
Death: 1995

Almeda D. Ashcraft is believed to be the first woman to obtain her pilot's license at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. Her license was issued April 8, 1955. She took up flying because she and her late husband, J. Collins Ashcraft, often made business trips, said a grandson, William Ashcraft.
"They had their own private plane. Evidently, from the stories he told us, she was a very good pilot."
She retired in 1984 as a nurse after 24 years with the former Booth Memorial Hospital in Florence. She was a member of Lakeside Presbyterian Church and was formerly on the board of the Kenton-Boone Chapter of the Kentucky Society for Crippled Children.
She also leaves a son, Charles Pete Ashcraft of Riverview, Fla.; a brother, Lou Delaney of Cincinnati; 11 grandchildren and numerous great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.
