A mum who posted an emotional Mother’s Day message urging others to cherish the occasion died falling down the stairs two days later.
Rosaleen Haughney, also known as Rose, tragically fell down the stairs at her home in Coventry, West Midlands, on March 13, loved ones say.
A "hardworking" and "caring" mother-of-two, she sadly never regained consciousness, her family said in a heartrending GoFundMe tribute.
A fundraising page has been set up to raise money for Rose’s two young children, Jack, 11, and Rosie, eight, following her death aged 44.
The donations are to be invested into an ISA and split 50/50 when the children are 18, according to the tribute on the page.
"Rose was a hardworking caring mum, loved by many, and will be forever missed, especially by Martin (partner), Jack and Rosie and Pete, her brother," the message read.
Tragically, one of Rose’s final Facebook posts described how hard she found Mother’s Day without her own mum, who she said survived five brain tumours.
She wrote on the evening of Mothering Sunday: "Ed Sheeran’s new song supermarket flowers hits a nerve when you no longer have your mum….Happy Mother’s Day to all you lovely mothers out there x x."
She later added: "Thank you all for your kind words. Please look after your mums take loads of photos as you will always remember that exact moment when you look back x x x.
