BC Sports Hallof Fame – HONOURING THE PAST
Honoured Member E.V. “Billie” Mitchell passed away on February 13th, 2019 at the age of 103.
Mitchell was a legend in Canadian figure skating circles, whose accomplishments and innovative ideas have helped shape the business of Canadian figure skating into the organization it is today.
In 1961, Mitchell was elected chair of the British Columbia Section of the Canadian Figure Skating Association, becoming the first woman on the national board of directors. She was then elected the first woman on the executive level of the CFSA, and three years later, its first female president.
Billie was inducted into the BC Sports Hall of Fame in the Builder category for Figure Skating in 1998. Our sincere condolences to the Mitchell family.
