THE family of a young Vale teacher has paid tribute to their ‘beautiful and much-loved’ daughter who died on March 2 after a car crash in Quainton.
Emma Weston, 23, who taught at Winslow CofE combined school and most recently at Whitchurch Combined Primary School, was driving her car in Blackgrove Road, Quainton, last Thursday (March 1), when she collided with another car.
She was taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, but died the next day.
Miss Weston, who always wanted to be a primary school teacher, studied for a BA Hons degree in primary education and was described as ‘a dedicated teacher’.
In her spare time, Miss Weston was a guide leader with the second Bicester Guide Troop.
Her family said: “The tragic loss of our daughter Emma has left a hole in the lives of everyone who knew her.
“She was such a beautiful person inside and out, who befriended everyone she met.
“With so much to give, she has been taken from us far too soon.
“Her infectious smile and kindness will always be in our hearts.”
