Family pays tribute to “biggest shining light” following road collision

The family of a woman who died following a road traffic collision in Audenshaw have paid tribute to their “matriarch and biggest shining light”.

Ann Bates (82) passed away on November 26, following the collision which occurred on Manchester Road on November 20.

The driver remained at the scene and enquiries are ongoing.

A spokesperson for the family said: “Ann Bates sadly passed away peacefully at Salford Royal Hospital surrounded by her loved ones.

“She leaves behind her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, as well as many other family members and friends who are all grieving her tragic loss.

“Ann was a strong woman, proud of her roots and her independence. She had wonderful lessons to teach those that came after her. She had an open-minded outlook on her life allowing her to constantly grow as a person.

“She loved to talk and discuss life and the world with people, believing truly that life is to be nothing but lived with love and adventure in our hearts.

“We know that wherever she is now, she’s dancing, she’s singing, she’s smiling with a glass of bubbles in her hand. That’s how we will always remember her. Ann will always be irreplaceable.

“With her passing our family has lost its constant, its matriarch and its biggest shining light. Our hearts are heavy as we now try to build a life on her teachings, her outlook and her aspirations for us all. We hope you are at peace.

“A special thank you to NWAS, GMP, and Salford Royal Hospital for your care and compassion shown at this difficult time.”
