Tragic death of Norwich bride-to-be just days before wedding
A 47-year-old grandmother who mysteriously died earlier this month was due to get married the following week, her partner said.
Mandy Amies, of Pilling Park Road, Thorpe Hamlet, was pronounced dead at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital on April 8.
An inquest was adjourned last week after a post-mortem examination was carried out. But the cause of her death has not been established and toxicology tests are being carried out.
Ms Amies was unwell on April 7 and taken to hospital, where she died the following day. Her partner Keith Alden, 43, who lived with her, paid tribute to the former beauty therapist.
He said: 'She was a bubbly and happy-go-lucky character who had everything going for her, and then this happened. She will be sadly missed.'
