Ms Stokes said her mother had touched so many people's lives.

'Wonderful mother'

She said her mother, a teacher at Wolverhampton College, achieved her dream of attaining a BA Hons in Psychology and went on to study for a Phd in cyber psychology.

"She was my everything, my best friend. I could take her anywhere and be proud to say she's my mom," Ms Stokes added.

Other relatives - Mrs Stokes' other daughter Sally-Jo Cramman, 14, her father Nigel Cramman and Jade's father Dean Stokes - said: "Mandy was the most beautiful person - in every respect- to have graced our lives.
