Tollcross Housing Association mourns passing of two respected employees

Karen Ritchie and Linda Miller

Members of staff, committee and tenants of Tollcross Housing Association remain in shock at losing two of its close colleagues and friends recently.

Linda Miller (65) passed away on Tuesday, 27th September 2022 and Karen Ritchie (56) shortly afterwards on Monday, 24th October 2022.

Both passed away unexpectedly and leave behind families who cared for and loved them dearly.

The families allowed the association to share in their grief as the association paid respects at the funerals that were held on 13th October and 3rd November respectively.

The association has made donations in Linda and Karen’s names to charities they felt passionate about – Poppy Scotland and Cancer Research. To further honour lost friends, the association will bring together their families and create a memorial that will be a permanent reminder of Linda and Karen.

Linda and Karen were long-standing staff members who worked hard to ensure Tollcross tenants received a first-class service both within mainstream tenancies and those within the sheltered housing complexes. Their efforts will be their legacy for a long time to come and Tollcross said it already, and always will, misses them.
