Predeceased by parents Emma and Herbert Grant, loving husband Lorne Ridgeley Glassford, brother Donald Grant, and brother-in-law Clayton Feltham.

Survived by daughter Marilyn and Greg Mack. Grandchildren Amy, Sophy and Steven. Sister Mary Feltham and sister-in-law Hilda Grant.

Win was born in New Perlican NFLD., and joined the R.C.A.F. in 1940. When the war ended she went on to finish her education and completed a Business Degree at Sprott-Shaw College in Victoria, B.C.

She met her husband Lorne in the air force in 1945 and they were married in Victoria in 1950. They had a wonderful and fulfilling 47 years together until Lorne passed away in September 1997. Win returned to work full time in 1970 until her retirement from the Federal Government in 1988. She was always keen to get involved in various clubs, sports, activities and volunteering in Prince George. Over the years she was part of the Prince George canoe club, Caledonia ramblers hiking club, the hickory wing ski club, the Sons of Norway ski touring club, Rotary Anns, Toastmistress club, the Prince George Hospital Auxiliary, the Community band, and FSNA to name a few.

She was a member of the Y.M.C.A. walkers, played badminton, loved to sew, knit, needlepoint, garden, camp, read and travel.

She never stopped wanting to learn and share her knowledge. She will always be remembered for her hiking stories in the Rockies, as this was the place that she loved the most. Everyone that met her soon realized that she was the one to get on board if you needed something done. Win was an organizer and a credit to everything she volunteered for. She believed in hard work and dedication to everything she set her hands to. She was a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother. She loved her family and was so proud of her grandchildren. The community of Prince George, her friends and family suffered a great loss the day she left us. We will all feel something missing from our lives for a very long time.

We thank you Win, for your love, support and care.

God’s peace to you Win.
