Ms Stuart was a support worker with vulnerable adults and her family said she "took great pride" in her work.

"She will be greatly missed by all that had the fortune to know her," the tribute added.

Another man, David Roberts, was injured in the attack.

North Wales Police is appealing for witnesses.
