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.
