Tributes to 'diamond' mum-of-five following sudden death

Tributes have been paid to a mum-of-five following her sudden death.

Claire Bevan, 31, died on February 2, leaving behind partner, Rob Jones, 34, and their young children.

Her devastated family described the care worker, who lived in Widnes, as a "diamond" who "put everyone before herself."

Claire had no health problems prior to her untimely death.

A post mortem is yet to be carried out to determine the cause of the mum's death.

Speaking to the Liverpool Echo Claire's brother-in-law, Gavin Nevitt, said: "I've known her since I was 15 and she was like my best friend and my sister.

"It's just so overwhelming to be honest."

Following Claire's tragic death a gofundme page was launched in a bid to try and support her partner and their children - six-year-old twins, eight-year-old son, 10-year-old daughter and 11-year-old daughter.

"We didn't even know even how popular she was. Rob doesn't have Facebook, but everyone has been messaging me," Gavin said.

"It's just overwhelming. In a way we're not surprised how many messages we've had, she was that type of person.

"She had an impact on everyone she met."

Rebekah Pill, who created the gofundme page, wrote: "She was the most selfless person and the most caring.

"Nothing was ever too much for her, she put everyone before herself and wouldn't ever expect anything back.

"She was a diamond with everyone's children like a second mum to all.

"She has sadly left behind a devoted loving partner Robert and their five amazing young children.

"This will be for [them] to help them along the way and to prove to Claire just how important she is to everyone.

"She was also a massive part of our Halton Borough Wolves family, who her little boy plays for.

"She loved watching him play and wouldn't miss a game hungover or not.

"We all know she will be dancing in the sky with her beautiful mum watching over everyone.

"Rest in paradise an angel taken back far too soon."

At the time of writing, 200 people have left donations amounting to almost £4,000 of the £5,000 target.
