Obituary of Anne Service, lifelong Girl Guide; born 4 February, 1946, in Edinburgh; died 17 July, 2008, in Edinburgh, aged 62.
Anne Service was a leading light in the Girl Guide movement and a pillar of the local community in South Queensferry.
Her brother, Bert, now living in Dublin, remembered his sister’s passion for the movement. He said: “Generations of young women were the beneficiaries of Anne’s leadership over the decades and seeing her guiding colleagues turn out in such force for her funeral was truly heart-warming.”
Anne was also a local church elder and, with the late Rev John Carrie, she co-founded an annual parade of youth organisations in South Queensferry which is still going after 30 years.
