Diana Spencer-Churchill

Diana Spencer-Churchill (1909 –1963) was the eldest daughter of British statesman Sir Winston Churchill and Clementine Churchill, Baroness Spencer-Churchill. 

She was an officer in the Women's Royal Naval Service during the Second World War. 

Churchill had several nervous breakdowns. In 1962, she began working with the Samaritans, an organisation created for the prevention of suicide. She committed suicide on 20 October 1963 from an overdose of barbiturates. She is buried with her parents (who both outlived her) and her siblings.
