SADNESS STRIKES ALL THOSE IN OR CONNECTED TO THE BAND

Pipe Major Reta P. Stewart

1917 - 2010

It is with great sadness that we bring the news of the passing of a strong personality

in the pipe band world, especially in the Dundee, Perth & Angus Branch of the RSPBA.

Reta Stewart (nee McBeth) was a young and successful solo piper around the games in her younger years

just when the Mary McLean Dancers were in the throws of forming a new ladies pipe band in Dundee.

After two approaches, the band were very lucky to obtain the help and services of this dedicated

piper who was to continue teaching and coaching right up to her eventual passing.

A real enthusiast who gave every help and encouragement freely and in abundance throughout her life.
