Jill Hotchkiss Worden, the wife of Apollo 15 astronaut Al Worden, died on Sunday (May 4, 2014). She was 70.

Noting her mother's passing, Tamara Worden Christians wrote in part on Facebook:

It hurts to imagine how we are going to go on without her. She was a wonderful wife, mother, friend and especially a loving grandma! If you knew my mom personally, remember a good time together and raise a glass in her memory!
In his 2011 book, "Falling to Earth," Al Worden recalled their meeting.
...a month after I began my congressional campaign, I met a widow named Jill Hotchkiss at a party. We hit it off instantly. Neither of us was looking for a relationship, but when you meet someone so funny, outgoing and beautiful, it doesn't matter. In July of 1982, in the middle of the campaign, we married. My campaign manager wasn't happy... but Jill was more important than any campaign. We've been together ever since. I didn't win a seat in Congress — but I did win Jill.
On behalf of the collectSPACE community, our condolences to Al, Tamara and the entire Worden family.

It seems like only yesterday that Al was at Pontefract. I'm certain that I speak for all those who attended his lecture in expressing our deepest sympathy and condolences to him at this sad time.
