Tribute to victims of Garboldisham crash

Tributes have been paid to a 'thoughtful' mother who died alongside her son in a car crash on Sunday.

Jennifer Molloy, 48, and 22-year-old Daniel Gemmell, who had both recently moved from Thetford to Carbrooke, near Watton, were killed in the accident at Garboldisham, near Diss.

Both had been rear seat passengers in a silver Ford Puma, which was involved in a collision with a black Vauxhall Zafira.

Ms Molloy's best friend, Carol Young, 47, from Castleford Close in Thetford, said she would always be remembered for her caring nature.

She said: 'We were always there for each other. If she had a problem she would come to me. She was always buying silly cards and used to say 'cards mean everything'. She was always really thoughtful.'

The pair had been friends since they attended Charles Burrell High School together and more recently were involved in the running of the Pine Close Community Centre.

Ms Molloy, who had four children, one of whom died at a young age, and five grandchildren, spent time in Germany and Devon before moving back to St Margaret's Crescent, in Thetford, some years ago. She had only recently moved to Carbrooke to live with her son.

'She loved her holidays and wasn't happy unless she had a bit of sun. We went to Cuba once and had a fantastic time. She would always say that was the best holiday she ever had.'
