Lireesa Windrunner was the Ranger-General of Silvermoon and wielder of Thas'dorah a few years prior to the First War. She was the mother of the four Windrunner siblings: Alleria, Lirath, Sylvanas and Vereesa. Since the eldest child, Alleria, refused the mantle of Ranger-General, choosing instead to make more practical use of her abilities as a member of the Farstriders, Thas'dorah remained in Lireesa's hands until tragedy struck: at the onset of the Second War, she and many of her rangers were killed in a bloody attack by the Amani trolls, who had recently allied themselves with the invading Orcish Horde. Sylvanas became the new Ranger-General, but Alleria was the one who took up Thas'dorah.
While Tales of the Hunt states that Sylvanas became Ranger-General following Lireesa's death in the Second War, the short story Dark Mirror instead shows that Sylvanas was already an established Ranger-General before the Second War had reached Quel'Thalas.
It could be speculated that Lireesa was actually killed during the interim between the First War and Second War.
