    Sonia Scurfield, owner/co-owner of the Calgary Flames from 1980-94, died on 6/14 at age 89.

    She and her husband, Ralph, bought the Flames and moved them from Atlanta to Calgary. Her husband died in an accident in 1985, and she owned the team by herself until she sold it in 1994.

    The Flames won the Stanley Cup under her ownership in 1989, and she is the only Canadian woman to have her name engraved on the Stanley Cup.
