THE FAMILY of a mother-of-two who was found dead in Theale last week have released a touching tribute to her.

Kylie Dembrey, 28, died in the early hours of Thursday morning from stab wounds to the chest and neck.

Officers from Thames Valley Police were called to an address in Blossom Lane at 12.53am following reports that a woman had been seriously injured.

Police and paramedics attended the scene, but Ms Dembrey was pronounced dead.

In a statement her family referred to her as 'sassy' with a 'big personality'.

They said: "We are grieving the loss of Kylie who has been cruelly taken from us too soon.

“She had just embarked on a college course and was feeling optimistic about her future helping those with mental health problems.

“Kylie was our daughter, sister, cousin and niece, and a mother to two beautiful boys.

“Although she was petite, she had a big personality and our lives will not be the same without her.

“Kylie faced challenges in her life, but she overcame them with her sassiness and sense of humour.

“We shall miss her smile and laugh and our world will be a quieter place without her.”

Mark Sinclair, aged 30, of Blossom Lane, Theale, has been arrested and charged with one count of murder.
