A message from her cousin Emma and Chris on The Evening Star website read: “I am still in shock that this has happened.

“Michele was always such a happy and caring person.

“She will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Our thoughts are with Pete, Hannah and Ben and the rest of the family at this difficult time.

“May you rest in peace Michele.”

Vanessa Dare wrote: “Michele's parents are my godparents, and my husband and I would just like to say that our thoughts are with all of the family at this tragic time.

“God bless you all and love you always. Vanessa and Dave xxxx.”

Rev Daltry said that it was believed Mrs Wood's stress-related illness took an unexpected and sudden turn for the worse, which drove her to taking her own life.

She also leaves behind a 20-year-old daughter, Hannah, and 16-year-old son Ben.

Instead of flowers, the family have requested donations for Great Ormond Street Hospital and Rwanda Direct via Farthing, Singleton and Hastings funeral directors, 650 Woodbridge Road, Ipswich, IP4 4PW.
