A Welwyn Garden City mum has thanked the public after thousands of pounds were raised to cover her daughter’s funeral, following her unexpected death.

The funeral of Kellie Sutton, 30, of Pollards Close, took place on Friday, December 1, at St Mary Magdalene Church in Hollybush Lane.

The mother, who left behind her three children aged 14, 11, and four, died on Saturday, August 26.

To pay for the funeral a JustGiving page was set up, which reached the family’s goal of £2,000.

A pink coffin, which was Kellie’s favourite colour, was purchased with the money, which also covered the cost of the rest of the funeral.

Kellie’s mum Pamela Taylor said: “I would like to thank everyone for coming to Kell’s funeral, the church was full of people who knew, loved and miss her.

“Kell was a beautiful, loving, kind daughter who loved life.

“She had time for anyone that needed help and she was always there for everyone.

“We all miss her and even though we have had her funeral I still can’t think of her as gone. I still text her as if she was still with us.”

“She will always be in our hearts and she will live on in her children.”
