THE family of a woman from Rippingale killed in a three-car crash on Friday have paid tribute to a “wonderful wife, step mum, daughter, sister, cousin, aunty and boss”.
Mandy Sewell, 47, of Brambling Walk, Rippingale, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash on the A15 at Thurlby, near Bourne, at 7am.
The tribute says Mandy, known to her friends as Moo, “will be remembered by all those whose lives she touched for her humour, sense of fun and a mischievous streak.
“She was strong willed and stood behind her beliefs but more than this she gave those she loved strength whenever they needed it”.
Formerly of Peterborough and Stamford, Mrs Sewell had recently moved to Rippingale, “where she loved village life”.
Her family said she was passionate about history, reading, handbags and her allotment, adding: “She was never happier than being surrounded by the people she loved and anyone who attended one of her parties will have a story to tell and memories they will never forget.
“She will be sadly missed by all who knew her. A burning light has gone out in our lives.”
Mrs Sewell was driving a white Mini Cooper when she collided with a white Ford panel van and a black Volkswagen Golf on Friday morning.
A 32-year-old woman from Nottinghamshire arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving has been released on bail pending further enquiries. She must return to Grantham Police Station on March 11.
