A YOUNG mother found dead in her Rhyl home will be remembered next week.
The funeral of 32-year-old Ruth Hepton will take place at St Anne’s Church on Vale Road, Rhyl, on Wednesday, January 16, followed by committal at Colwyn Bay Crematorium.
The service will begin at 2pm.
Her brother, Steven Hepton, 33, said people were welcome to pay their respects, but it would be a family-only service at the crematorium.
He added: “Thank you all, from all of the family, for the overwhelming support during this sad time - Ruth would have been proud.”
Former Rhyl High pupil, Ruth, who worked at Sanlam Private Wealth, formerly known as Buckles, leaves behind her five-year-old son, Oliver, who will now be cared for by her sister, Rachel, 38.
The family have requested there are family only flowers at the church, and if you would like to make donations, all the funds will go to Oliver’s trust fund.
Information on how to donate can be found via Tongs Funeral Directors.
After the funeral there will also be a memorial gathering at the Ffordd Derwen for close friends and family.
Ruth’s body was found by emergency services on Sunday, December 30, in Kingsley Avenue at 1.30pm.
A spokesman for North Wales Police said: “A Home Office post mortem has been carried out and at this time the death is not being treated as suspicious.
“Toxicology results are awaited to provide the cause of death.”
