Family tribute to Ginette Rose, devoted mother of Red Lodge


12:26 November 24, 2021

Tributes were paid to a devoted mother of two and sister described as the “glue” of their family after her sudden death at the age of 36.

Sid Sanders remembered his 18-year-old partner Ginette Rose, known affectionately as Netty, as a dedicated mom in their unit of four that people would never forget.

Miss Rose, from Red Lodge, near Mildenhall, was reported missing on Sunday November 14.

Following a police search, the 36-year-old was found in a forest off Tuddenham Road in Herringswell on Tuesday afternoon, less than a mile from their home.

Mr Sanders met Miss Rose through her sister Jackie Rose and the tattoo artist said the couple started the conversation by tattooing her.

A concert in Brandon marked the start of their 18th birthday together and the couple have two children Hayden, 15, and Ruby, 11.

Miss Rose was also close to her three sisters Emily and Maria and Jackie who remembered her as their rock.

Mr Sanders said: “She was very lively, she was very energetic.

“We really kept to ourselves. We were our own unit of four.

“Netty raised them every day of their lives. She was a very devoted mother, which made it more difficult. She loved children like any devoted mother.

“We never had a day apart, not at all.

“It really doesn’t seem real, nothing will ever happen to us.”

“She loved tinkering with the kids, like most moms, she messed up a lot with the kids. She loved cooking with the kids and doing things in the garden.”

Mr Sanders said if anyone knew Netty personally, she touched you and you couldn’t forget her.

The 36-year-old had surgery for an overactive thyroid six years ago, but despite the challenges it presented, Mr Sanders said she was “doing better than she ever was”.

Mr Sanders said: “She was in a really good place, which makes it even more bizarre.”

Her older sister Jackie Rose described the caring nature of her younger sister and her willingness to do her best for her family.

Miss Rose said: “She was my little sister, she was the glue of the family.

“She had a contagious, contagious laugh. We used to laugh just because she did.

“She was just a happy, loving girl who loved life and people.

“She was the best thing about all of us. I want her kids to grow up knowing how amazing their mom was.”

When she was sick, Miss Rose said Netty would come to the hospital, paint her nails and pat her head.

Miss Rose said: “She was very family oriented which is why it is so hard to believe.

“Her children and Sid were her world.

“If anyone in the family had something wrong she would go and research, she wanted to make everything better and she wouldn’t take no for an answer.”

She added that she didn’t know anyone else who had a nail polish collection like her sister.

Miss Rose’s death is considered unexplained at this time and a file will be prepared for the coroner.

Mum and neighbor Donna Burchett set up a Just Giving page to support the family of Miss Rose, who have raised over £ 2,000 since the page started.
