65-Year-Old Canby Woman Dies in Small-Plane Accident near Daybreak Field
LA CENTER, WA (March 11, 2018) – On Sunday afternoon around 1 PM, a 65-year-old woman was pronounced dead after a small-plane crash on the 4100 block of J.A. Moore Road.
The tail-dragger plane crashed just south of the grass airfield in a wooded area. Fire, police, and emergency personnel arrived at the scene of the crash, just south of Daybreak Field.
The pilot and only occupant of the aircraft was removed from the wreckage by firefighters, and pronounced dead on the scene. The woman was identified by the Clark County Sheriff’s Office as Mary H Rosenblum of Canby, Oregon.
According to reports, Rosenblum was traveling with another pilot, also from Oregon, that was in a separate aircraft. The two had flown to other locations throughout the day, and were going to land in the area between La Center and Battleground.
An investigation is currently ongoing by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). No other information regarding the cause of the fatal accident has been released at this time.
Heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Mary Rosenblum. She was an author, a master cheesemaker, a passionate pilot, and a mother to two sons. May she rest in peace.
