It is with deep regret that we have heard of the death of Greta Doig a founding member of Glasgow Churches Together, who served on the committee for many years.

Greta died peacefully at home on 13th May 2020, and is survived by her beloved husband Malcolm and Greta’s much loved sons Colin and David and her loving Grandchildren  Katie, Andrew, Emma and Fraser.

A private funeral will take place on Monday 25th May.

Our thoughts and condolences are with Greta’s family, may she rest in peace.

We are grateful to Greta for all that she did in the formation and development of Glasgow Churches Together and in the name of ecumenism and unity.

Greta and her beloved Malcolm with friends in Glasgow Churches Together

 

Greta Doig was a stalwart in the development and life of Glasgow Churches Together. She was fully committed to her beloved Church of Scotland and its traditions; and, open hearted and generous to other churches and faith groups. Greta and I worked closely together for ten years: labouring and praying on our churches’ ecumenical pilgrimage, everything from small groups to city-wide celebrations. It was a privilege to share faith and friendship together. On behalf of so many: thanks, Greta.

Greta was a great lady, utterly devoted to the Church of Scotland and to the cause of Christian unity in whatever shape it could develop.  She was generous in outlook with the patience that generosity often brings, and a marvellous source of strength to us all. She loved family – and people – and took delight in her little white car!    I am sure she will be at ease in the company of the saints.
