THE family of a Ringwood woman who died following a crash have paid tribute to her as a “thoughtful, loving and generous” person.


Ella Cooper, who 37 years old and was due to be married later this year, was badly injured when her Volkswagen Up was involved in a collision with an Audi A3 and an Isuzu pick-up.

The incident happened near the Sixpenny Handley roundabout in Dorset on Saturday 1st February.

She was taken to Southampton General Hospital but died six days later.

Her family said in a statement: “Ella was the kind of person you could not forget. She had the amazing ability to make so many feel special.

“Every day she lived life in full and made sure her many adventures were experienced with someone she loved.

“Ella was thoughtful, loving, generous, smart, hardworking and fiercely determined in all that she did.

“This year was set to be her best year yet as she looked forward to her wedding. So much of her life was still left to be fulfilled.

“We will miss her contagious energy, happiness and enthusiasm for life. She will be missed by all she met, her effect on others was profound.”

The family added: “We love you Ella and the world is a little bit dimmer without you to brighten it.”
