In memoriam: Diane Beckett

13 July 1959 - 24 October 2017

We at Scottish Churches Housing Action are sad to announce the death of our colleague and friend Diane Beckett, in a road traffic accident on the evening of Tuesday 24 October.

Diane, our Development Manager, joined SCHA in June 2000. She covered the whole of Scotland, supporting local volunteer action to tackle homelessness. Her commitment and enthusiasm were infectious. We will miss her, as will the many people whose lives she touched.

Diane's funeral was held at Daldowie Crematorium on Wed 8 November, led by Barbara Ogilvie. Tributes were given by Diane's daughter Amy Beckett, and by Alastair Cameron.

Our thoughts and prayers are with her two daughters, her parents, and the wider family.

Rev Graeme Wilson, Convener
Alastair Cameron, Chief Executive
