Jennifer Mills-Westley was described by her family as someone who was “full of life, generous of heart and would do anything for anyone”.
The 60-year-old was a mother of two daughters - Sarah and Sam - and grandmother of five who was living life to the full in the “eternal spring” of the Canary Islands.
Originally from Norwich, Norfolk, she had worked as a road safety officer with Norfolk County Council.
In that role, Ms Mills-Westley taught schoolchildren cycling safety training and she was described by colleagues as “popular and well-respected”.
She had retired and settled in Tenerife, where she owned two apartments in the Port Royale complex on the hillside edge of Los Cristianos.
One two-bedroom flat was rented out while she lived in the other and had been resident there for at least 10 years.
Neighbours described her as “quiet and peaceful and always immaculately dressed”.
With one of her daughters living in France and the other in Norwich, she enjoyed travelling to pay visits to her family.
In a poignant tribute following her death, her ex-husband Peter said she was a “wonderful woman, a brilliant mother and I loved her dearly”.
