Loss: Jayne Peacock, from Lincolnshire, died on Sunday from a rare strain of influenza
A mother-of-two who touched the lives of thousands of children has died of flu on her way back from a day out.
Jayne Peacock, 43, from Lincolnshire, died suddenly from a rare strain of influenza on Sunday.
The emergency services were unable to revive her when they were called to Wetherby service station.
Her devastated husband, Craig, told how his late wife was admired in the local community after founding a club which teaches youngsters martial arts, 25 years ago.
‘She was the backbone of the club. We started over 20 years ago and she gave up her family allowance to get it started so children in the area could have somewhere to train,’ he said.
‘She ran the club. [She] was ‘nannie’ to everyone.’
He added: ‘I owe Jayne my whole life and wish that everybody had a heart like her.
‘She would give her last £1 to a homeless person. She would starve so that others could have food. She never had a bad word to say about anyone.’
