Additional Info:"The community was greatly saddened to hear of the passing of Elizabeth just before midnight on Thursday 30th October. At her funeral in Daliburgh many of us were able to give thanks to God for her life and her contribution to our community. The large number present at the service was its own eloquent expression.
Lizag was brought up in Loch Carnan and had happy memories of school days in North Uist at Bayhead. In her early years she worked away in Aberdeen and Paisley before meeting and marrying Angus Murdo and settling in South Uist where together they raised the family. She was a familiar face working in Uist House for many years in a variety of different roles. A very practical woman she could turn her hand to most things including varnishing Church Pews and sewing Church hall curtains.
Faith was an important feature of her life and she was willing to share that faith with the children of our Church in the Sunday School for a number of years. Lizag will be missed by many but none more so than those closest to her; her two sisters Morag and Agnes here on the islands, her children Roddy, Donnie, Margaret and Irene and of course Angus Murdo. As a Church family we offer them the support of our prayers at this time." (Written by Rev. Jackie Petrie in the Church Newsletter dated December 2008/January 2009)
