Partick Housing Association board member Margaret Burke passes away
It is with great sadness that the board and staff of Partick Housing Association (PHA) announces the death of board member Margaret Burke.
Margaret passed away peacefully on Tuesday 5 November after a short illness.
A committee and board member of PHA since 2001, she helped the organisation develop from its roots in protecting historic tenements, to its current status as a developer of innovative new-build schemes.
A tireless volunteer, Margaret also chaired the Partick United Residents Group for more than a decade, was a member of the Partick Community Council, a director (and former chair) of the Friends of Mansfield Park and an executive director of the Tenants Information Service.
Margaret became a Partick Housing Association tenant in 1999. She was so grateful for her new first-floor flat that she quickly threw herself into supporting the Association’s work with the local community. Claiming that she initially got involved simply because she was “nosey”, Margaret quickly became a prominent part of the association’s governance, character and local presence.
Partick Housing Association said its sympathies go out to Margaret’s family and friends.
