TRIBUTES have been paid to Rutherglen’s former Scottish international ladies indoor bowls captain Angela Boyle, who died last month.
A member of Kingswood Bowling Club and the West of Scotland Indoor Bowling Club, Angela (60) passed away after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
A bowler for over 30 years, Angela was secretary of Kingswood Ladies and district secretary of Bowls Scotland until her illness forced her to stand down.
Angela’s funeral service was held at St Columbkille’s Church, before cremation at the Linn Crematorium. She is survived by her husband Charlie, two sons and three grandchildren.
Angela was a regular fixture in the Scottish national bowls finals and in 2007 she partnered Kathy Gemmell to reach the final of the Scottish Championships at the Northfield green in Ayr.
Angela was a past winner of the Cambuslang and Rutherglen Sports Council female sports personality of the year.
Sports council chairman Russell Clearie said: “I would like to offer the condolences of the sports council to her husband Charlie and her family on the passing of Angela.
