By The Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) ' A Boston Globe writer whose syndicated "Ask Beth" column enabled teenagers and parents to get frank and detailed advice on how to deal with sexuality in the 1960s and 1970s has died. Elizabeth Winship was 90.

Her son, Larry Winship, told The Associated Press Friday she died of natural causes Sunday at Rosewood Estates, an assisted-living facility in Roseville, Minn.

The Globe says Winship wrote "Ask Beth" for 35 years. She was the widow of longtime Globe editor Thomas Winship.

The column, described by one daughter as the first "to treat young people with complete respect and honesty," was once syndicated to 70 newspapers.

Winship is survived by five children. She moved to Minnesota a few years ago to be closer to two.

A service was held Thursday in Roseville.
