Jane Harvell Beckham
December 29, 1944 - June 15, 2023

Jane Harvell Beckham, 78, of Castle Hayne, passed away peacefully on June 15, 2023. She was born on December 29, 1944, in Wilmington, North Carolina, to Hugh Duncan and Mary Elizabeth Harvell.

Jane will be lovingly remembered by her daughters, Leanne Beckham (Sean Newcomer) of Leland, NC, and Heidi Martin (Scott) of Denver, NC. Her grandchildren, Kristin Anderson (Colby), Hannah Martin, and great-grandchildren, Addy and Loftin Anderson, of Denver, NC, were a great source of joy and pride in her life.

In addition to her immediate family, Jane leaves behind her brother, James Harvell of Bolivia, NC, who shared a close bond throughout their lives.  She and her cousin Bertha Ann Butler of Wilmington, NC also shared a special bond as not only family, but as best friends. 

Jane was preceded in death by her husband, Larry ‘Phillip’ Beckham, and her parents, Hugh Duncan and Mary Elizabeth Harvell. 

She had a vibrant spirit and an infectious laugh that could brighten even the darkest of days. Jane’s nurturing nature extended beyond her immediate family, as she was known for her compassionate nature towards all animals, such as deer, raccoons, cats and dogs.  

A private gathering for family and close friends will take place at a future date to celebrate Jane’s life.  In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests that donations be made to Lower Cape Fear Lifecare in Wilmington, NC Lower Cape Fear Hospice, 1414 Physicians Drive, Wilmington, NC 28401 or to a local Animal Shelter in Jane’s name. 

The family extends their deepest appreciation to Lower Cape Fear Lifecare for the compassionate care provided during the final days.
