"She loved baking, music, fashion and make-up and she treasured the times she spent with her family.

"This has sent a shockwave through the family and we are all absolutely devastated.

"Rest in peace Beth until we meet again, we will always love you."

Bethany’s brother Jason and his partner Emma Homer- Hill added: “Beth was a source of great joy and laughter in our family. She had an amazing ability to bring fun and excitement into our lives. She was devoted to our children and her love and care for them is testament to the fine and wonderful young woman she was. Our loss and grief feels too heavy to bear.”

Growing up in Bidford Bethany was a popular girl, the youngest of seven siblings with four brothers and two sisters.

Rachel Lamont, a former neighbour of Bethany in Bidford said: “My two children grew up playing with Beth and the other children in the street I'm still in shock that such a vibrant lady with so much to give has been taken away far too soon, my heart goes out too her family and friends RIP Beth sleep tight xx.”

Bethany loved children, and with six nieces and nephews, she regularly helped babysit for family members.

Chloe Butler, 16, Bethany’s niece, said: "I will miss my 'Bethy' so much, especially her infectious laugh and how she lit up my day with so many happy snap chats about wild and random things. She has been a shining light all of my life.”

Growing up Bethany attended Bidford Primary School before going on to study at Stratford High School.

A statement from Bidford Primary School said: “Bethany was a cheerful, bright little girl and an equally loving, caring Auntie to her nephews and nieces. Her support with these family members has been greatly valued and we will miss her."

Bethany, who had a flair for maths, continued her studies at Stratford College, taking vocational studies and with an emphasis on business.

A statement on behalf of the learning development team at Stratford College said: “We remember Beth very fondly indeed. She was a highly successful student at the College, possessing a lively and bubbly personality. Having made a huge impact on both her teachers and peers, Beth will be fondly remembered.”

Friends have also been quick to pay their respects to Bethany and her family.

Tam Bartlett, a close friend of Bethany’s said: “Beth Marie Hill you were a bright intelligent girl with a heart of pure gold. You were beautiful inside and out and I will never forget the memories we share!

“It's your time to brighten up the night sky and grow your wings but you will never be forgotten rest in peace.”

Another friend Jordan Prosser added: “Beth was a lovely girl who I grew up with, I regularly played around Bidford, at each other's houses! She was joyful and full of spirit at all times, it's so sad she's gone so soon! RIP beautiful - behave up there.”
