‘Adorable’An­drea dies of sud­den brain haem­or­rhage

Stockport Times West - - NEWS - Paul Brit­ton

ADRIV­ING in­struc­tor died from a brain haem­or­rhage just 48 hours af­ter she com­plained of sud­den pains in her neck.

Touch­ing trib­utes have been paid to ‘ adorable’ An­drea Dale, who was just 30.

An­drea, from Al­trin­cham, was ad­mit­ted to Wythen­shawe Hos­pi­tal last week af­ter ini­tially be­liev­ing she had sim­ply strained a mus­cle in her neck.

The pain, how­ever, in­creased and an am­bu­lance was called.

Her con­di­tion in hos­pi­tal de­te­ri­o­rated and she passed away two days later fol­low­ing an op­er­a­tion to re­move fluid from her brain at Sal­ford Royal Hos­pi­tal.

An­drea was fit and healthy and friends and fam­ily said her shock death came com­pletely with­out warn­ing. They are now rais­ing money for a life­line char­ity in her mem­ory.

An­drea, who lived with her part­ner of eight years Ash­ley Platt, on York Street, Al­trin­cham, was a for­mer pupil at Al­trin­cham Gram­mar School for Girls.

She went on to study crim­i­nol­ogy at Manch­ester Uni­ver­sity and worked for Aspire Driv­ing school and part-time at Manch­ester Air­port, with se­cu­rity com­pany G4S.

Ash­ley, 29, said An­drea ini­tially be­lieved that she had strained a mus­cle. He said: “It was all just out of the blue. She was fit and healthy – just a nor­mal 30-year-old. It all started as a pain in her neck. She was a very pos­i­tive per­son who was al­ways happy and po­lite.

“She was just amaz­ing. Peo­ple would find it hard to say any­thing neg­a­tive about her.”

Ash­ley has set up a Just­Giv­ing web­site page for dona­tions in An­drea’s mem­ory to Head­way, the na­tional brain in­jury char­ity.

She leaves mum Va­lerie, dad Andy and brother Mark. Mum Va­lerie said An­drea loved Al­trin­cham, de­spite many of her friends mov­ing away.

She added: “She was ex­cited about her fu­ture here. She was sav­ing up so that she could buy her first home in Al­trin­cham. Sadly this dream will never come true.”

Friends have paid trib­ute in dozens of Face­book and so­cial me­dia posts.

One said: “Words can’t ex­press what she meant to us all. An­drea will be re­mem­bered as a lovely, adorable, beau­ti­ful lady and all who knew her will miss her.

“She was a fit and healthy 30-year-old and the sud­den loss has dev- as­tated her friends and fam­ily.

“Her smile could light up a room. She gen­uinely touched the hearts of ev­ery­one she met. An­drea loved her life, and ev­ery­thing she wanted was here. We’re just all so sad that she has left us.”

A fu­neral ser­vice was held at Al­trin­cham Cre­ma­to­rium in Dun­ham Massey, Traf­ford, on Tues­day.
