Death of Past Captain Isobel Kempsell

It is with sadness that I report the death of Isobel Kempsell on 14th August at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital.
Isobel was captain of the County in 1992 and 1993. She was a member of Cambuslang and Cathkin Braes Golf Clubs and  regularly participated in County Competitions  until recent years when she has not been able to play. She remained an Associate Member and did participate in a number of Tri Am putting competitions. She was a lovely lady.
Isobel's funeral will take place tomorrow, Friday at 10-15 am at South Lanarkshire Crematorium followed by a thanksgiving service at Burnside Parish Church at 11am. 
We send our sincere sympathy to her family.
