May E. Haskell, age 87, of Perryman, MD, passed away January 3, 2013 at Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Bel Air, MD. Born in St. Louis, MO, she was the daughter of the late Joseph Francis and Monetta Elizabeth Hagen Walsh and beloved wife of the late Richard Briggs Haskell. A licensed pilot, she was a proud member of the Civil Air Patrol where she made the rank of Captain in her early 80's. She was also a member of the EAA (Experimental Aircraft Association) and the Ninety Nines, a female pilot organization. One of her many adventures was smuggling bootleg liquor into Oklahoma (a dry state at the time) to pay for her flying lessons. She encouraged others to pursue their passion for aviation. May was a loving grandmother and an avid pet lover.

Mrs. Haskell is survived by her sons, Michael Walsh of Seabrook, SC and Tom Haskell of Portal, GA; daughters, Elizabeth Haskell of Walla Walla, WA and Loretta Cook of Perryman, MD; grandchildren, Michael and Joe Walsh, Emery, Nathan and Sam Cook.
