Isobel Dunkeld

Sad news received this week of the death of one of our life members, Isobel Dunkeld.  She fell a few weeks ago and broke her hip, the operation had gone well but a few complications came along and she passed away peacefully on Saturday the 21st of October.

Isobel was a committee member at Maryhill Ladies AC until the club changed its name to Glasgow AC in 1975 when Isobel became the first Vice President of the club.  The club was involved in the UKWAL and Isobel ran the ‘tuck’ shop at Scotstoun, arranged fund raisers, organised travel and accommodation for UKWAL meetings and lots of admin support.  Her husband Tom who pre-deceased her will be remembered as a coach and starter.  They both got involved with Maryhill Ladies when their daughter Eileen joined the club.

In later years Isobel got involved with Scottishathletics Championships, typing the results and then managing all the photocopying of track sheets, field cards and results before we moved into the age of technology when photocopying was no longer required.   She ‘ruled’ her area but provided dedicated service to athletics for many years and she will be well remembered.  

She was aged 94 when she passed away although she could often be seen walking her dog ‘Megan’ in Kelvingrove Park.

Her funeral will take place at 2.30pm on Friday the 27th of October at Maryhill Crematorium, Glasgow.
