The family of a woman killed in a Worcester Park crash earlier this month have paid tribute her.

Sheila Cutting, 85, was hit by a car just after 5pm on October 12 near the junction of Hampton Road and Balmoral Road.

She was taken to hospital but sadly died four days later.

Sheila's family have since paid tribute to the loving woman.

"She always had a smile on her face and wouldn't let the day get the better of her," the message sent to the Sutton Guardian read.

"Loved by all for her kind heartiness, fun character and for always being a asset to any family event. Sheila always looked after and cared for those whom surrounded her and her love was welcomed and returned.

"Shopping in town often saw Sheila having to ask help to reach the upper shelves for her groceries as she was so small."

The family added that they have received many kind messages from shop staff around the area.

"We cannot believe how popular she was," the message continued.

"The tributes have been beautiful and showed us how cared for she was by all.

"She took everything in her stride whilst looking after her son who suffers with an illness that makes him dependant at home.

"Worcester Park and the lives of the family will have an empty space when Sheila should still be and all of those that love her so dearly can only hope to be half of the wonderful woman that she was. A true angel, when on earth and now in heaven."

The driver of the car which struck Shelia, a black Vauxhall Corsa, stopped in Kingsmead Road on the evening of the crash and has assisted police with their enquiries. There have been no arrests.
