Name:Mrs. Margaret MacLellan
South Uist
Place of death:Uist & Barra Hospital, Benbecula
Date of funeral:21/09/2010
Funeral Location:St. Peter's RC Church, Daliburgh
Presider:Fr. Roddy McAuley
Additional Info:Mrs. MacLellan was born in Oldham and came to Uist in 1972 after her marriage to Angus MacLellan from Kilphedar. She had four children: James, Archie, Mary Anne and Angus John. Margaret lived the later years of her life in Daliburgh, and was an avid reader and gardener and when able, always attended the Whists in St. Peter's Parish! She gained a B.A. in her fifties from the Open University. Margaret passed away peacefully in Uist and Barra Hospital after a lengthy illness. Margaret faced death with fortitude and at her passing, she was at peace with Christ. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
In his homily, Fr. McAuley said "Margaret phoned me a few months ago and asked if she could be put onto the housebound list within the parish so that she could receive communion in her home. She knew she was ill and wanted to be renewed in her faith and reconciled to God and to the church. It was a moment of grace. In her final illness she had asked for a priest to be with her and to give her the sacrament of the sick. No-one goes through life without their pain or sorrow. God knows the trials and the hardships that Margaret went through. I know that today, her family would like to thank all those people who reached out to Margaret, and in her final illness the doctors, nurses and carers in Gartnavel hospital and in the Uist and Barra hospital. We think too of Margaret's mother in a home in Manchester, and ask that God be her peace especially today."
