Sad News from Doris Bilton

There is sad news from Doris Bilton, whose husband Alan died at 8am on 11th January 2010.  There will be a private cremation on Wednesday 27th January 2010 followed by a Service of Thanksgiving in their local village church.


Alan was  the Inspector of Mines and quarries for the whole of Scotland from 1972 - 1986.  He had suffered with Alzheimers and arthritis for a number of years. Many people will remember them from their Edinburgh days before they moved south to a flat attached to their daughter's house.   Alan was very supportive of the Mothers' Union and Doris' work in the church.


Doris served as one of the 6 Central Vice-Presidents of MU at Mary Sumner House in the days before the post of Provincial President of MU in Scotland was created. Doris was also a Past Diocesan President of MU in Edinburgh and active as a MU speaker, on Synod and much involved in the election of Bishop Brian, and also Leith Old People's welfare.  She was made an MBE in 1998.

Please keep Doris in your prayers.
