Mary Greig

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Mary Greig, one time Secretary of the Scottish Ladies County Golf Association.

Mary was the founder member of the Dumfriesshire County Ladies Golf Association, when they joined with Border Counties and Galloway to form the South Division of Scottish Ladies County Golf in 1972.

She was Secretary of Dumfriesshire Ladies for 23 years and latterly took over the secretary-ship of Scottish Ladies County Golf before it was subsumed into the Scottish Ladies Golfing Association.
Failing eyesight caused her to retire for her administrative duties, but she still took a keen interest in Scottish Golf and would attend as many events as she could until her deteriorating health made travel impossible.

Mary (88) was a great character, always cheerful and well-loved by all who knew her.

Mary's sister died some years ago and Mary is survived by her niece, Dorothy Hill.

The funeral is at Roucan Loch Crematorium  on Thursday 31st December at 11am.

 Please note the change of venue

From the Crematorium website...
From the North or South  Roucan Loch is easily located from the M74 at Lockerbie, take the A709 signposted Dumfries for 8 miles, once you are through the village of Torthorwald, drop down the hill for half a mile and take the first road on your left which is signposted Roucan Loch after 100 yds turn first right into the grounds.
From the West, either travel through Dumfries following signs for Lockerbie, or take the bypass until the Lockerbie Road roundabout.
Head east on the A709 until the foot of the hill below Torthorwald, turn right towards Collin and after 100 yards turn right again. Follow the road for approximately 400 yards until you come to the car park.
