Tributes have been paid to a well-know blogger who was ‘full of life and character’ after she suddenly died at just 30-years-old.

Rochelle Hern, from Halliwell, had amassed tens of thousands of followers across social media, including TikTok, where she often shared her experiences of living with cerebral palsy.

Rochelle tragically died after being found unresponsive by her care team at her home on March 11.

Ginny Edgar, whose son, Chris Baxendale was Rochelle's fiancé, says they do not know the cause of death at this stage, as they are still waiting for the results from the post-mortem.

 She said: “It’s had a huge impact on us all, so many unanswered questions.

“We all miss her terribly, and Chris has found it quite difficult as they spoke on the phone several times a day.

“I have felt sad at Rochelle’s passing.

“She’ll be very sadly missed.”

Ginny says that Rochelle was “full of life” but needed additional support, and Ginny was more than happy to become an advocate for Rochelle.

Rochelle was at the stage where Ginny was getting her additional support with housing and a social worker to improve her quality of life.

“I’d spent so much time with her, advocating for her, and finally getting the social worker, carers, doctors, and housing to start to listen, it was all a little too late. 

“Her dad Dean and family miss her terribly. I know he’s found it all particularly difficult having only started to build up a relationship after many years apart.

“They were looking forward to attending a family wedding in Birmingham this month.”

Rochelle recently reconnected with her childhood sweetheart Chris, who she met through school.

They soon became inseparable after reaching out to each other on Facebook four years ago.

Ginny added: “When she met up with Chris it was a really positive thing.

“Things were going to look better for her, and she had arranged to go for swimming lessons, and she was learning to cook.

“She was such a character, and full of life.”

Chris and Rochelle became engaged 18 months ago, and they dreamed of getting married on a beach in Tenerife, living there and starting a family.

The Bolton News: Chris also has cerebral palsy and high-functioning autism, and they always supported one another.

To remember Rochelle, Chris found a secluded beach in Tenerife and put teddys and a memorial stone there, whilst scattering her ashes.

The family managed to raise almost £3,000 after setting up a GoFundMe to help towards funeral costs.
