'Your memory will live on forever:' Grieving Doncaster mum's touching tribute on daughter's funeral anniversary

The grieving mother of a Doncaster murder victim has paid a touching tribute to her ‘beautiful princess’ on the first anniversary of her funeral.

Monday, 12th July 2021, 11:59 am
Amy Leanne Stringfellow died in June last year.

Former soldier Amy-Leanne Stringfellow 26, died at a house in Balby in June last year after a brutal attack by her fiance who later killed himself in prison before facing trial for her killing.

Her grieving mum Jacqui Fareham has promised to get justice for her daughter and is campaigning for a change in the law so people who kill but die before being convicted can still be found guilty after their death.

And on the first anniversary of the funeral of her daughter, Mrs Fareham paid a moving tribute on social media, describing Amy-Leanne as ‘perfect,’ the last year as ‘eternity’ and adding: “I love you all the pennies in the world.”
