A GRANDMOTHER who was killed while crossing the road last week will be remembered as a warm and generous person, her family have said.

Doreen Rose Seaward, of Ashford in Middlesex, was visiting one of her three sons when she was involved in a collision while crossing the A413 London Road in Amersham last Wednesday.

The family of the 78-year-old have today released a tribute to her through Thames Valley Police.

It said: "Doreen was much loved and she will be missed by all who knew her.

"She was part of a large and close family and leaves behind three sons and three grandchildren – but being such a warm and generous person there were many more people who knew and loved her.

"She and her husband Bert moved to Ashford from Chiswick in London, to be near to her family and to enjoy their retirement at a slower pace of life.

"After Bert died she regularly visited her sons and, valuing her independence, she insisted on making her own way when visiting. At the time of the accident she was making a regular visit to her son. It was a journey she had made many times before."
