Earhart expert Foudray dies at 92

(KAIR)--An internationally known resource for Amelia Earhart History.

That’s how Lou Foudray, who died March 17 at the age of 92, is described in her obituary from the Becker-Dyer-Stanton Funeral Home, in Atchison.

Foudray was long known locally for her work on behalf of Earhart, the famed aviator, and one time Atchison resident.

Foudray, for 30-years, resided at the Amelia Earhart Birthplace Museum, in Atchison, where she served as curator and gained her recognition for expertise on the famous aviator.

Foudray has been cremated, with a memorial service planned to be held April 23, in Atchison, with those details to be released at a later date.

Among her survivors are her six children, three sisters, and one brother.
