Tragedy as ‘tender and loving’ young mum, 33, dies after choking on food while cooking dinner for her family

TRIBUTES are pouring in for a “loving” mum who tragically died while cooking her family dinner.

Siobhan Rose Simmonds, 33, was found fighting for her life on the floor of her Dover home by her toddler, partner and his son.

The mum-of-two was rushed to hospital, where she sadly died a week later.

But her loved ones say “the one bit of solace we had” was that Siobhan was able to donate her organs.

Her sister Susan Ababte said their family had been “completely devastated” by the loss of Siobhan.

Susan told KentOnline: “Siobhan was a very funny child and grew up to be such a funny adult. She always wanted to make people laugh.

“When I walked down to the theatre with her when she donated her organs I have never felt so proud in all my life.

“There was no hesitation from any of the family because we knew it’s what she wanted to do.”

The family said their final goodbyes to Siobhan on March 2 – one week after she collapsed at home.

The 46-year-old, who was one of Siobhan’s eight siblings, said: “Siobhan was such a tender mum. She was always dancing, playing and teaching her children. She was a natural.

“We are all completely devastated.”

The family are now fundraising to pay for the mum’s funeral through a Crowdfunding page.

The page reads: “Those of you lucky enough to have met Siobhan will remember the loving nature she inherited from her parents, Bernadett and John.

“Siobhan was a naturally caring and special person who with her quirky sense of style loved life and life loved her.

“Siobhan would probably hate this post asking for any help with funeral costs but we could really do with anything to help give our Bon the send-off she deserves.”

She is survived by her 14-year-old son and two-year-old girl.
