Lady Killearn at her 101st birthday in January 2011

Jacqueline, Lady Killearn, who has died aged 105, was a staunch supporter of the Clan Hay Society for more than 40 years.

Her friendship with Robert Hay, following Lord Killearn’s death in 1964, introduced her to Clan Hay, whose members were readily welcomed at both her homes.

Jacquie was a spirited character and will be sadly missed.
