Friday 14th December started like any other day. Mum was doing one of her favourite activities, riding with her friend Maria.
Sadly she fell and sustained an unsurvivable head injury. She was airlifted to Derriford, where sadly she was confirmed brain stem dead on the 15th December. She passed away with her husband, children and grandchildren by her side.
Mum loved horses, anyone that knew her would know her passion for all things horse related and she worked tirelessly to provide the best for us as children. As we left home and the horses at home dwindled she still was immersed in the horse world, both heavily involved in South West and National Pony Club Tetrathlon, the local agricultural show and point to point.
She rekindled her love of riding and died doing something that brought her great joy and freedom. Mum was to all who knew her quite possibly at her happiest and prime. She is loved by so many, and will be sorely missed. She leaves a huge hole in many hearts.
Whilst the family are grateful for all the messages of support, we would like to request that in lieu of cards, gifts and flowers that donations are made to Cornwall Air Ambulance. Mum was proud Cornish lady and the rural way of life was hers. Without this valuable resource we may never have had the chance to say goodbye.
