Tributes to mum who died after son born

THE heartbroken family of a woman who died of a brain tumour hours after her son was born have paid tribute to their “gorgeous Rosie”.

Rosie Kremer, 24, died on Tuesday in Newcastle’s Royal Victoria Infirmary (RVI) six hours after her baby son, Bobby Peter, was born by caesarean section.

Bobby was born at 29 weeks and weighed 2lb 15oz. He is being cared for in the special care baby unit at the RVI.

Throughout her pregnancy Rosie had been violently sick and doctors thought she was suffering from labyrinthitis, an inflammation of the inner ear.

She slipped into a coma on Monday in Carlisle’s Cumberland Infirmary and was transferred to the RVI where she died the following morning.

A CT scan showed Rosie had a brain tumour.

Her mum Lesley told the News & Star: “Rosie didn’t do things by halves.

“She was gorgeous and beautiful – a very loving and caring girl. She was fit and bright.”

Rosie, of Graham Street, Penrith, was a former Queen Elizabeth Grammar School pupil. She also attended sixth form at Ullswater School and did her GNVQ at Newton Rigg.

Her dad Peter Kremer, who died of cancer in 2002, was the former head of PE at QEGS.

Lesley said: “Rosie was a very bright girl who lost her way a bit when her dad died. Her two older sisters went off to university but Rosie would not leave me. I will miss her. I don’t know what I will do without her. She was my little shadow and we did everything together.”

Rosie trained as a nursery nurse but had recently been working at a tanning salon in Penrith. She had also been a cocktail waitress at The Lounge in Penrith.

Lesley said: “She loved her jobs but hadn’t worked since she became pregnant because she was so ill. She rarely complained.”

Lesley, a teacher at Beaconside Infants School in Penrith, said during her younger years Rosie was a good swimmer and was “very sporty”.

She said: “When she was younger her dad was always pushing her at athletics and bringing home javelins for her to practice with in the garden.

“They would go on bike rides and she would sit at the side of the road and refuse to move because he had about 10 gears on his bike and she had one!

“She also played the part of Annie in a Penrith Players production which she really enjoyed.

“She owned a silver Honda Civic Import that was 25 years old. It was a sports car and she absolutely loved it.”

Rosie’s former partner Mark Davies, who is Bobby’s father, said: “Rosie loved dancing and we used to go away to festivals and nightclubs together.”

A private family burial will be held on Friday, June 8 at 10am at Penrith Methodist Church. A memorial service, for friends, family and colleagues, will be held on Friday afternoon. The time of this service has yet to be confirmed.

Rosie also leaves her sisters Ruth, 28, and 26-year-old Joanne.
