Sadness as Morag’s long life ends at the grand age of 105
ONE OF Lochaber’s oldest residents, Morag Cameron, died peacefully this week aged 105.
Miss Cameron, passed away in her Roy Bridge home on Monday, less than a mile away from the Upper Inverroy croft she was born in.
The oldest twin in a family of eight, Miss Cameron lived through two World Wars and worked in Fort William’s Nevis Bank hotel from the age of 14 until she returned to Roy Bridge to build the village shop with her brother, Angus Cameron, now aged 97, until her retirement aged 60 . M iss Cameron celebrated her 105th birthday on November 9 last year, Remembrance Sunday, at home with her sister, Joan Cooper, aged 98.
The centenarian spent her retirement knitting socks and spending time with her family and previously said the secret to a long life is ‘hard work, eating plenty of cheese and enjoying a dram’.
A Requiem Mass will be held for Miss Cameron this Saturday (August 15) at 12pm in St Margaret’s Church, Roy Bridge. Afterwards she will be laid to rest at the village’s Cille Choirll cemetery.
