Death of Associate Member Ellen McCormack

I am sorry to announce that the death occurred last week of Ellen McCormack of Bishopbriggs. Her funeral was on Friday of last week.
Ellen was in the past a member of Cawder Golf Club but has not been able to play golf for many years. When she did she supported county events and anything her sister, past captain Betty McCormack, was involved in.
We send our sympathy to Betty who, like Ellen , has been  resident in a nursing home for a number of years.
