Lisa Beckham Hagenson was born on June 1, 1960, in Chalmette, Louisiana to Curtis L. and Wanda Dean Beckham.  “Dina”, as she was affectionately known, was a graduate of Prentiss High School where she was a standout basketball player and was also a cheerleader. 

She was not only passionate about sports, but also had a great love for the youth of her community. 

Many young lives were impacted by Dina as she coached for the Prentiss Little League and also the Dixie Youth League; teaching not only skills of the game but also serving as a positive role model for young people. 

Along with coaching, she also umpired softball games and officiated basketball games.  Many will also recall that Dina also played organized softball in her younger years; her talent so great on the field that many still reminisce of those glory days gone by.

Whether it was vacationing at a cabin in Wears Valley of the Great Smokey Mountains, catching Red Fish at Bay St. Louis or just gathering with all the family to celebrate the holidays, making memories with those she loved was paramount to Dina and those memories will forever be cherished. 

In addition to having owned and operated an athletic store which also specialized in screen printing and trophy supply; Dina also worked for the Jefferson Davis County Co-Op, where she made many friends during her 15 years there.  She attended Talowah United Methodist Church.

Dina was preceded in death by her father, Curtis L. Beckham in 2015.

Her memory will forever be cherished by her husband, Joey Hagenson of Purvis; two  sons, Thomas Bridges and Carter Bridges, both of New Hebron; her mother, Wanda Beckham of Magee; two sisters, Donnna Carlisle (Jimmy) of Georgetown, Debbie Barnett (Ricky) of Magee and two brothers, Randy Beckham of Magee and Richard C. Beckham (Leisha) of Brookhaven.
