Tributes To "Mother Christmas" Figure Who Died in Looe Coach Crash
7:22am 4th June 2014
Grandchildren of one of the women in the Looe coach crash leave drawings at the spot where she died.
Margaret Luxton's family say she always had a smile on her face - and cared for everyone else before herself.
The 59 year old was on a trip to the Duchy when the coach ran out of control at Morval.
Speaking on behalf of the Luxton family, Margaret Luxton’s daughter in law Ruth Luxton said: “A wonderful local Exmouth lady was taken from us far too soon at the age of 59.
"Margaret Luxton was a lovely wife to Richard of 40 years and wonderful mother to her two children Marie and Terry, all from Exmouth. She was a fantastic nanny to her six grandchildren, Amy, Lucy, James and Alfie, Archie and Amelie who will all miss her massively.
"At Christmas when she always turned up like mother Christmas with sacks full of presents for everyone. Margaret always had a big smile on her face and always cared for everyone else before herself.
"She worked for many years at Knapps Cross nursing home who have all said they will be deeply saddened by her loss.
"Margaret was a very timid lady who was afraid to fly which is why she loved going on her day trips on a coach with her sister Brenda who was also her best friend. When they both set off that morning on May 13th sitting at the back of the coach, little did they know that Margaret would never return.
"The crash has saddened and shocked us all as a family. We drove to the site to place flowers and posters the grandchildren had made, it was an emotional day but we would love to think that our lovely, positive Margaret will always be shining on us all. She will be massively missed."
