Tribute from family of woman who died after falling from mobility scooter

Posted on 12th July 2018

The daughters of a 73-year-old woman who died shortly after falling from her mobility scooter have paid tribute to their mum who was ‘well known and well liked’ in the local area.

Eileen Fieldsend died in the Queen’s Medical Centre on Saturday, July 7 following the incident in Chaddesden Park Road, Chaddesden on Thursday, July 5.

In a tribute to their mum Eileen’s daughters Karen, Lynne and Tracie said: “As a family we are shocked and devastated by this tragedy.  Although we were all aware of her terminal cancer diagnosis she was still leading a very independent life and we never imagined we would lose her in such a traumatic way.

“Our mum was well known and liked in the local community having been an Avon representative and most recently volunteering in the local Treetops hospice shop.

“Following her cancer diagnosis she created a 'bucket list' of things she wanted to do. This year along with her daughters she went to Cornwall for a week and visited the Eden project. She took a ride in a helicopter and, most amazingly of all, did a sky dive raising over £3000 for Treetops.

“Treetops hospice provided great support to us as a family when our Dad died of cancer 2 years ago, and they continued to provide support to our mum with respite once a week. 

"We would like to thank everyone that helped her that day, both the professionals and the public, and also the staff at Nottingham Queens Medical Centre.”
