Notification with the passing of RNPA member Donna Marie neĆ© Osterberg Catlin, former Ice Follies skater, early NWA stewardess and widow of NWA Captain Bruce Knoff Catlin.  I found a fun article from The Evening Tribune newspaper in Albert Lea, Minnesota, dated Monday, February 4, 1946:  “Donna Osterberg, line skater with the Ice Follies the past three years was named Rochester Snow Queen at a ball Saturday night sponsored by the Lions' club. Previously named queens from Albert Lea, Austin, Owatonna, Faribault and Red Wing looked on as she was crowned. All will be guests at the St. Paul Victory carnival later this month.”  Donna was 87 years of age at the time of her passing.  Captain Catlin joined Northwest 01-08-1943 and retired in 1976.   Captain Catlin born June 26, 1916, passed on March 11, 1999.
