Mrs. Dianne Burkett

Receptionist / Administrative Assistant

After being a member of Searcy FUMC for 30 years, Dianne became part of the staff as Receptionist/Secretary in 2002.  Prior to joining ranks of paid service, Dianne had a long relationship with this congregation and tirelessly volunteered with various groups and events throughout our church. 

After marrying, Barry, in Searcy FUMC in 1972, she taught Sunday School to 4-year-olds and kindergarteners for 15 years, served as president of the United Methodist Women, helped organize the Ladies’ Luncheon for 16 years, and aided the UMW where needed.  Her favorite part of serving as the church’s receptionist is the people she has contact with every day, both members of the church and those in the community. She is a people person.

A self-proclaimed bookworm, when not greeting visitors to the church, Dianne can be found with her nose in a good mystery book.  She also enjoys gardening and the always-welcome lunch and shopping date with her daughter, Jennifer.

Dianne and Barry’s daughter and son-in-law, Matt, live in Arkadelphia.
