Obituary: Dorothea Hannah

Dorothea Hannah’s funeral at Skirling Parish Church on June 29th was attended by the clan chief and many relatives and friends especially from the community of Skirling in the Borders. Dorothea was brought up in Dumfries and trained as a teacher before marrying Donald and settling in Edinburgh. When Donald died she moved to be near her daughter Isobel who with her husband ran a guest house in Skirling. Dorothea was 94 and an honorary member of council. Her husband Donald Hannah, had been a founder member of the clan society and its first treasurer, in whose memory the Donald Hannah Memorial Trust was set up. Dorothea and her daughter Isobel were trustees, and for many years Dorothea was in charge of clan goods. At one time Isobel also audited the clan accounts. Dorothea was always interested in the clan and its members, for whom she did a great deal, and will be remembered with much affection by all who knew her.

Walter Dore, husband of clan member Barbara Hanna Dore, made enquiries with the following results:

There being no family to contact (no offspring), Wally managed to find a Miss Carole Rice, a registered nurse, who has worked with and known Dr. Hanna quite closely since 1960. Dr. Robert Hanna died August 11th after approx. two years of failing health, at age 79. Miss Rice knew of his Clan membership, as well as the Clan motto and of the Sir Thomas More Collegiate (Christian Brothers of Ireland) Pipe band (although he wasn’t active in it recently). She said Dr. Hanna was a “wonderful, unique and very gifted man” and highly respected by everyone.! Wally gave her a brief history of the Clan Hannay Society and the reasons for my call. He expressed the condolences of the Chief on behalf of the Clan. Miss Rice seemed deeply touched, and thanked the Clan Hannay Society for its interest and expressions of concern.
