She leaves behind five children, three of whom are just 10, eight and seven.

Now, this JustGiving page has been set up by her eldest daughter to raise £1,000 to assist Rachel's children in the future.

The page states: "Rachel left behind a massive heartbroken family who adored and loved her with all their hearts.

"We have had a huge amount of support as a family with so many people offering to help and wanting to help with something.

"Our mum was perfect and made her children to be strong and independent and this will help them have a head start for when they reach their adulthood to reach their goals."

Rachel's family has paid tribute to her - describing her as a 'hard-working woman with a massive personality and an even bigger heart'.
