On July 19, 2013 British Columbia lost one of its most dedicated volunteers. Glennis (Granny) Godfrey passed away. Glennis was one of those volunteers that whatever was asked of her she did it and more. We remember her getting off youth buses at Provincial finals with her walker but was always there for the young bowlers of British Columbia. Glennis was the ultimate volunteer and we all will miss her greatly.
If anyone would like to send sympathy to the family they can send them to Frank & Robyn VandenBroek, 401 McBridge Street West, Cranbrook, BC V1C 6T4
