Alice Lovejoy of Scarsdale, one of 38 Women Air Service Pilots who died during WWII, will be honored by the American Airpower Museum at Republic Airport on Long Island on Memorial Day. Lovejoy, who was born in 1915 and grew up as the middle of three sisters in Scarsdale, learned to fly in Westchester and worked for Piper Aircraft after high school. She became a WASP, as the pilots were known, and trained at Avenger Field in Sweetwater, Texas, where she graduated from a six-month program in 1943. She served for a year before she died on Sept. 13, 1944, in a mid-air collision over Texas. She was one of 38 WASPs who were not allowed to have a military funeral or related benefits when she was buried in Hartsdale. Historian Julie Lauria-Blum, who researched the history of Lovejoy and the WASPS, helped locate a niece named Alice Lovejoy Timmons, who was born eight years after the crash and named in her aunt’s memory. Timmons and her daughter will attend the tribute ceremony. The American Airpower Museum will unveil a bronze memorial tribute that will be placed on permanent display adjacent to its WASP exhibit.
