“Barb was a devoted mother, grandma, mother-in-law and friend. We loved her
endlessly and loved spending time with her. She was so much fun to have
around, always smiling, always kind, caring and had so much time for
everyone. She absolutely adored her two grand daughters, Nancy and Betsy,
and they adored her back. She was a huge part of all of our lives.

“The girls were waiting for her to arrive that night so that they could go
out trick or treating. Instead, there was a knock on the door to say she
was in the middle of the road outside and our lives changed forever.

“From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to say thank you for what
everyone has said and done for us following our loss. We have been able to
take so much comfort knowing that she was so very loved by all. Thank you
also to everyone who fought so hard to keep her alive that night.

“We now need to be able to explain to the girls what and why this happened
to their beloved Grandma Barb so if anyone has any information whatsoever,
please contact the police on 101, quoting incident number 575 of October
31.”

An investigation into the circumstances of the collision is ongoing by
Staffordshire Police.
