Flight Attendant – Age 39
Madrid, Spain – Spanish Citizen
She was known as “Nieves” to her friends. Nieves was regarded as a stunning, vivacious, and utterly charming person, and for these reasons, as well as her kindness to everyone, she was most popular with her flying partners. She was fortunate to have found a career that suited her character and interests so well. She loved to travel and learn using her free time to explore the globe in a typically adventurous manner. Nieves was born in Bilbao, Spain and studied in England and France. She began her flying career with Pan Am in 1971 and was based in New York before joining the London base in 1978. She was a four-time recipient of the Clipper Ship, a Flight Attendant Recognition Award which was a tribute to her popularity with passengers and crewmembers alike. Nieves commuted from Madrid to London and flight 103 offered her a convenient check-in time compatible with the flight schedules. She is survived by her husband, Frank Rosenkranz, her mother, and her brother Francisco, and sister Marina.
