The family of a Midland mum-of-two whose death is being probed by police have today described her as a “beautiful and colourful character”.
Edith Jennings, aged 49, was pronounced dead at the scene after paramedics were called to a property in the Offmore area of Kidderminster at 2am on Saturday to a report a woman had fallen down some stairs.
Her death is currently being treated by police as unexplained.
Mrs Jennings, who lived in Offmore, married childhood sweetheart Robert after moving to Kidderminster and meeting him when she was 13. Her children Thomas, who lives in Kidderminster, and Carly, now living in Kingswinford, are both in their 20s.
In a statement released by police, the family said: “She had a great sense of humour and was always laughing. She loved nothing more than to be surrounded by her family and wanted to spend every moment with them. Edith was a beautiful and colourful character who was loved by so many people.”
The cause of death has not yet been established and the results of tests are awaited. A woman arrested on Saturday in connection with Mrs Jennings’s death on suspicion of manslaughter was released on bail.
