WOMAN OF VALOR
Rona Ramon, the founder of the Ramon Foundation named in memory of her husband, Israel’s first astronaut, Ilan Ramon, who was killed in the Colombia Space Shuttle tragedy in 2003 and the mother of IAF pilot Asaf Ramon, who was killed in an F-16 training accident in 2009, died on December 17 of cancer at the age of 54. She established the Ramon Foundation in 2010 to inspire Israeli youth to strive for academic excellence and promote space education. In 2013, The Jerusalem Post honored her for being “a woman of valor” at its conference in New York, and in 2016, she lit a beacon at Israel’s Independence Day celebration in recognition of her outstanding work at the Ramon Foundation. She is survived by her parents, Gila and Yisrael, and three children, Yiftah, Tal and Noa. “Ilan and Asaf touched the skies and Rona touched our hearts,” said President Reuven Rivlin.
