A funeral is taking place this week for a Welwyn Garden City mum-of-three who has been described as having “a heart of gold”.

The funeral of Kellie Sutton, 30, of Pollards Close, is taking place this Friday at St Mary Magdalene Church at 12.30pm, in Hollybush Lane.

The family encourage anyone who knew Kellie to attend and to also join them after at Hatfield Lawn Cemetery at 2pm.

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.
