Rev Canon Lisa Eunson, Episcopal rector. Born: 18 May 1954, in Tokyo, Japan. Died: 17 June 2017, in Banchory, Kincardineshire, aged 63.

Rev Lisa Eunson was the Shetland-descended American who made Deeside her home, and became the first woman to sit on the Chapter of St Andrew’s Episcopal Cathedral in Aberdeen.

A natural leader and communicator, Lisa brought performance and narrative to her sermons, referencing scriptural points through pointers in her own rich life. A recovered alcoholic, her preferred reference was that she had been “sober since 1987”.
