    P43E, Emily Thiel, from Oranjestad, Aruba, became a Silent Key 12 April 2018.
    She was 49.

    This past weekend Emily was hiking in the Aruba National Park and suffered a stroke. She was taken to the hospital where she was put on life support.
    Yesterday morning she was removed from life support and passed away.

    Many DXers and Contesters will surely have the "well-known and respected" P43E in their logs.

    She was a competitor in the 2006 WRTC, which was held in Brazil.

    P43E was a board member of the Aruba Amateur Radio Club.

    For many years Emily ran the P4 QSL Bureau. Her passing was a huge loss for the P4 ham community.'

    Emily is in my log many times. Always fun to hear her fresh voice in contests, young and vibrant.

    73 & 88, John, WØPV

    Worked her station several times and heard her often, a class operator. Condolences to family.
