Jenny Morgan, one of All Saints’ long-standing members, passed away in September. Jenny had been in care for some time, but prior to succumbing to old age and frailty was to be found every Sunday in her pew in the centre of the church, smiling and cheerful.
A retired librarian, she was full of knowledge and such an interesting person to listen to and with whom to chat.
Brian Skillen, a former colleague at the Mitchell Library, has written this tribute:
Jenny Morgan was ten years old at the time of the Blitz. She had to grow up fast, aware of her local school’s role as a mortuary. She recalled the frantic hunts for news of friends and relatives. It caused her to devote herself to people and good causes.
I first met Jenny in the Mitchell Library. She worked both there and at Whiteinch and Drumchapel libraries. She was immediately friendly in a system that was anything but.
Church activities included as organist at St Columba’s, Clydebank. Later, she was an active member of the All Saints Players. Jenny recalled with affection her duties, which included pastoral activity, which she initiated. She was always there for the less able.
