Tributes have been paid to a “beautiful” mum-of-two who has died at the age of just 36. Kayleigh Colegate has left behind her husband Ian and their two children Alys and Logan.
Now Ian has launched a fundraising page to help pay for his wife’s funeral and to support the young family. Ian is a big Rhyl FC supporter and the Rhyl Fans Association have urged supporters of the club to send their messages of support as well as donate to the appeal, reports North Wales Live. So far almost £4,000 has been raised.
Ian said: “As you all aware I lost my beautiful wife, Kayleigh. She leaves behind our children Alys and Logan, mum Sue, dad Gareth and sisters Becky and Laurie.

“She was loved by so many and will leave a hole in all our lives that we will never fill. Her kindness, humour and fun for life will live on in our memories.
“I have started this fund to help give her the send off she deserves and to help give our children the future she would want. If you’d like to show your support we would be so grateful, thank you.”
Rhyl Fans Association member Will Kearsley said in a post on Facebook: “As we all celebrate going all season unbeaten can we all please send our love to Ian Colegate who is a loyal Rhyl fan that sadly lost his wife this week.
“Their son was at the game in his full kit supporting the whites tonight (at Glan Conwy on Thursday evening). If any one could donate or even a simple share that would be much appreciated.”
Friend Fay Lewis said: “Still in so much shock, can’t believe you have gone Kayleigh. Sending lots of love and strength to Ian, Logan, Alys and all of Kayleigh’s family.”
Sarah Cooper added: “Special lady forever loved and forever missed xx.”
