Died: April 7, 2020 Broadgreen, UK
Nan-of-two Lynne Limbert, 67, from Broadgreen, had beaten bowel cancer last year and was healthy and active, spending her days doting on her two grandsons and enjoying a busy social life.
But after a few days of feeling under the weather, Lynne was rushed to hospital where her lungs were unable to recover from COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus, and she died on Tuesday afternoon (April 7).
Her son, hospital administrator Phil Limbert, told the ECHO he was forced to say goodbye to his unconscious mum, who he described as his “hero,” in full protective gear.
Through tears, Phil said staff at the Royal Liverpool Hospital, where he also works, were “absolutely amazing,” holding her hand so she was not alone and making sure she did not feel any pain.
