Agnes Winnifred “Winnie” Thompson Henderson nee Coulter (1910-1986) was born in Glasgow, Scotland. Her family emigrated to Canada by 1925. After graduating high school, Winnie worked for a time at Woodward’s before taking a two-year course in office work. She got a job as a telephone operator and worked in that profession through the 1930’s. She was married in Bellingham to Stanley Henderson (1906-1996) in 1933. Stanley worked at Imperial Oil for 45 years. Winnifred was a radical socialist and feminist who “demanded bread and roses for people everywhere”[obituary]. She was very active in the Co-Operative Commonwealth Federation, ran for School Board several times and ran a good race against Pat Burns for Vancouver city alderperson, and served as President of the Council of Women in the 1940’s.
