TRIBUTES have been paid to a young mum who has died only three years after her husband’s sudden passing.

Vickie Nyland passed away aged 37 at her home in Great Sankey on Friday, May 24 – leaving behind her three daughters Nicole, 18, Ellie, 17, and Chloe, nine.

The hairdresser’s tragic death came just over three years after her husband Jamie died suddenly of an infection in May 2016, three days after the 29-year-old plasterer was rushed to Warrington Hospital suffering from sickness and stomach pains.

She had met the man who she described as someone who ‘would do anything for his children’ around 12 years earlier while working at De-Ziners salon in Sankey, which Jamie’s mum owned.

And the pair soon became inseparable, later tying the knot at the Town Hall.

Vickie and her daughters had only recently returned from a trip to Ibiza – the family’s first holiday they had enjoyed since Jamie’s death.

Mark Faulkner, Jamie’s brother, said: “After Jamie passed, Vickie was never 100 per cent right again – it really took its toll on her and she had struggled with her health.

“She had been on holiday with the kids, and she hadn’t been well on holiday.

“It was the first family holiday that they’d all had together since Jamie passed away.

“They had only been back for a week or two, and she just died suddenly.”

Family and friends have rallied around Nicole, Ellie and Chloe in the wake of their mum’s death.

More than £6,500 has been donated to them through an online fundraising page, money which will go towards funeral costs and general living expenses for the girls.

One kind-hearted benefactor alone donated £1,000.

Mark added: “They’ve got no mum and dad now.

“Funeral costs are very expensive, but the cost of living for the next 12 months will be an absolute fortune.

Warrington Guardian:

“One of the girls is 18 and one is 17, so they’re hoping to be able to keep the house – and they’re hoping that they might be able to get enough money to help them to pay the bills.

“This will just give them a bit of a reprieve for 12 months and to let them get things sorted.

“They don’t even know yet whether they’ll have to move out of the house or not.

“One person donated £1,000, which is amazing.

“It’s fantastic that, in times of need like this, people pull together and help out.”
