Heather Smedley – aged 53 – sadly passed away as a result of her injuries after she was tragically involved in a road traffic collision in Royton, Oldham.
Paying tribute to Heather, her family said: "To the most wonderful mother to Benjamin, Olivia and Jamie, daughter to Hilda and Fred, sister, friend, and wife to Damian.
"The world was a much better place with you in it.
"Our mum was the most kind, gentle, beautiful soul inside and out. She faced all of life’s challenges with her beautiful smile, and her bravery and courage never wavered.
"We could not have asked for a better role model growing up, giving everything, she had to all of those she loved, and always supporting those around her.
"She was the glue that held our family together. Her resilience and kindness inspired us all to be better.
"She had the greatest sense of humour and contagious laugh that we will miss every single day.
"You were too good for this world Mum, there will be a hole in our hearts forever."
Heather's family have asked for privacy while they grieve for their loss.
