Death of Past Captain Jean Reid

It is with much sadness that I announce the death of Jean Reid at the Victoria Infirmary on Sunday 7th July. The funeral service will be held on Friday 12th July at Daldowie Crematorium at 12.45 pm.
Jean, a member of Cathkin Braes GC, was County Captain from 1985-1987. She was a faithful supporter of the County. Although she no longer played she attended social events and was a faithful supporter at County Championships and Jamborees right up until this year when her health prevented her attendance. We missed her then and will miss her in the future.
Members of LLCGA send their sincerest sympathy to her husband George , sons Gordon and Ian and her grandchildren.
