Death in New York

Marilyn S. McIlhagga

We report with sadness the death on 4th June (Friday last) of Marilyn, aged 71, wife of William McIlhagga in New York. She was born Marilyn Susan Weber on 30th March 1931 in Buffalo, New York. She married William Archibald McIlhagga on 22nd September 1961. A marriage of 47 years leaves a widower, three children and two grandchildren. Marilyn's funeral is on Monday 7th June when a Memorial Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at the Infant of Prague Roman Catholic Church, Cheektowaga. William is the younger son of James McIlhagga and Jean Blue Crawford. Jean was brought up in Fairlie, Largs, Scotland, the eldest daughter of Archibald and Mary (nee Drummond) Crawford. James was brought up in Greenock, Renfrew, Scotland, son of James and Johanna (nee McCulloch) McIlhagga. James junior emigrated to the USA in 1922 and became a naturalized citizen in 1937. We send our sincere condolences to all the family in New York, not least because William is my third cousin.
