Windsor passes suddenly at home

THE SPORTING AND cultural fraternity in St Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) is mourning the loss of Gailene Windsor, who passed away suddenly at her home at Arnos Vale on February 27.

A former national netballer, she was appointed a national sport ambassador in 2015.

At the time of her passing, Windsor was the assistant coordinator of the newly established Sport Against Crime Committee. She also worked closely with the Department of Sports in the “Giving Back Programme”, which utilises sport ambassadors in school visits.

Additionally, Windsor was a Diaspora Activist who represented various Diaspora groups and one who always exhibited national pride and wore the national colours proudly.

Windsor, who was said to be in her mid-sixties, was also a patron of the arts and a cultural enthusiast. She was the local representative of Dynamites Calypso Tent on the SVG Calypsonians Association and a generous donor to many local causes and sponsored many educational efforts.

The Ministry of Tourism, Sports and Culture in a release issued yesterday extended condolences to her loved ones.

“Our nation has lost a national gem and a stalwart in the netball fraternity. As the family, friends, various Diaspora organisations and those who knew and loved Ms Windsor continue to mourn, may comfort and peace be found in the knowledge that at the time of her passing, she was actively involved in serving her country in a capacity which she enjoyed,” the release said.
