Margaret MacGregor

It is with sadness that I have to advise of the death of former County member Margaret MacGregor (Barassie)

Margaret was a very enthusiastic member of the County who willingly helped June Kerr at many of our Junior events over the years.  She also took on the role of Webmaster for a time which was greatly appreciated by all. She was only too happy to help and enjoyed keeping the members up to date with all her posts.

Margaret only gave up her membership a few years ago when she was diagnosed with Cancer.  She bravely fought her illness and had a remarkable outlook on life, not allowing it to get her down.  During that time she also completed her year as Lady Captain at Barassie, no mean feat.

Aside from her golf, Margaret had many talents; a gifted squash player, an artist and she played tennis at a very high level which led to being selected to play in the Scottish Veterans team. With any spare time that she did have she enjoyed cycling and pottering in her garden.

Fiona Collier, a great friend of Margaret's, sent me this lovely picture taken a few years ago in Spain enjoying one of the many wonderful games of golf they had both abroad and at home.

Sadly Margaret's health deteriorated recently and she lost her battle on Saturday morning where she was surrounded by her 3 lovely daughters.

She will be remembered for her tremendous spirit and courage and will be very sadly missed by her family and all of her many friends.

I'm sure you will all have her family in your thoughts at this sad and difficult time.
