It is with great regret that we record Angela’s passing, 1st June 2015, after some nineteen years as a much-loved and appreciated resident in Colonsay.  Angela was a constant source of surprise and inspiration, self-effacing to a remarkable degree yet a lady whose talents outshone the vast majority of people.  Angela was an acknowledged and published expert on the German Arthouse Movement (see her Appreciation of Edgar Reitz’ Heimat Films), played and actually built her own spinet (a form of harpsichord) and created one of Colonsay’s finest gardens in the least promising site imaginable.  Her extraordinary analytical mind enabled her to make insightful written contributions upon almost any subject of debate, a gift that was wonderfully belied by her self-acknowledged difficulty with public speaking.  Angela had a particular sensitivity and feeling for the natural world, appreciated and helped to protect our island environment and was a generous and loyal friend to all who were privileged to know her.  Funeral arrangements are to be notified.
