IPSWICH: A week after she died on her way to do the job she loved colleagues today paid tribute to Kirstie Seaman, their “kind, generous and loving” friend.

The popular care assistant was travelling by moped to work at Oak House in Stutton when she was killed on the A137 between Wherstead and Tattingstone in a three-vehicle crash last Monday.

The former Manningtree High School student started working at the sheltered housing scheme around three months ago.

Shocked staff, rocked by the tragedy, said her “bubbly personality” would be greatly missed.

Court manager Alison Simpson, speaking on behalf of staff and residents, said: “In a short time she made a very big impression with her bubbly personality.

“She was kind, generous, loving and good fun to work with and a real chatter box.
