TRIBUTES have been paid to a woman with a “heart of gold” who died suddenly.

Lindsey Roberts, 41, was found dead in bed at her home on St Margaret’s Way, Acton, Wrexham.

Charlotte Mitchelmore, 18, woke up to find Lindsey laying in bed on the morning of Saturday, January 4.

She said: “We shared a room and I woke up the next morning and she had gone, it was quite a shock but she went in the night and we know she had no pain.”

Miss Roberts, who lived with her mother Rita Roberts in Acton, has been described as a charitable person who had helped so many people in the area, as well as being carer to her nephews and nieces, Oliver, David and Charlotte, of whom she was a mother figure too.

Charlotte said: “She was always helping people out. If anyone was ever in need of any help then she was there for them.”

Lindsey’s sister, Melanie Roberts, said: “She was such a happy go lucky person and she had a heart of gold.

“At Christmas she spent a lot of money getting food for the Wrexham foodbanks, as well as getting food for animals and even delivering meals to people on Christmas Day.

“She was a very charitable person and always put others before herself.

“It has been devastating as she was not ill or anything.

“It has hit the children very hard.”

The cause of her death has been given as natural causes and there will be no inquest held, the family said.

She was described as a lover of politics and dogs, living with her two chihuahuas which were described as her “best friends”.

Many tributes had been left on her Facebook page.

Valerie Shields wrote: “I can't believe you're gone, my heart is breaking Linz.

“I feel so bad for your family and those furballs that adored you.”

Stella Jones posted: “Totally devastating news. So sad to hear that another beautiful person has been taken away from us way to early and so young.”

A funeral is still in the process of being arranged by the family.
