Virginia Streeter was born in Cedar Falls, Iowa, on November 10, 1913 to Clark and Edith (Nielsen) Streeter. On August 11,
1943, she graduated with the fifth class of women pilots training at Avenger Field in Sweetwater, Texas, and as a WASP, served
as a ferry pilot in the Army Air transport Command (ATC), directed by Jackie Cochran. She first started flying in 1941 after
leaving her job as a dietician at the American Telephone & Telegraph Company to spend the summer at home in Cedar Falls. While
there, she was admitted into the local civilian pilot training course at Livingston Field and gained enough flying time to
achieve the thirty-five hours necessary for acceptance to train at Avenger Field. On June 24, 1945, she married naval officer
Frank Ross Cutler in Cedar Falls, Iowa, and settled in Long Beach, CA. She died December 11, 1978 and is buried at Fairview
Cemetery, Cedar Falls, Iowa.
