Who is Kelly Gleeson? Mum, 40, was discovered dead by her daughter after falling asleep with 'food poisoning.'

The family of a mother who died suddenly after going to bed with suspected food poisoning has expressed their grief.

Kelly Gleeson, 40, thought she had the illness on December 29 after throwing up for the majority of the day.

She went to bed around 6 p.m., but was tragically discovered unresponsive by her teenage daughter an hour later.

Paramedics were called to the family’s home in Stockport, Greater Manchester, but were unable to revive her.

Kelly, who worked as a unit manager in a nursing home and had no prior health issues, was found to have died from a pulmonary embolism, which occurs when a blood clot becomes lodged in a pulmonary artery.

Her sister, Jade Rothwell, told Manchester Evening News: “I was at home with my kids and my partner rang me and told me.

“He told me she had gone. I screamed and told him he was lying. We got the kids in the car and went straight to Kelly’s.

“That’s when I knew, when I saw everyone there. It was real. I had to go and say my goodbyes to her.”

According to the NHS, a pulmonary embolism can be serious or fatal if not treated quickly because it can impair pulmonary function.

Symptoms include shortness of breath, chest pain, and coughing or vomiting blood.

Jade, 30, went on to say: “The paramedics were unable to resuscitate her. It was totally unexpected. We couldn’t believe it because it was such a surprise. It’s been lonely and quiet without her.”

Kelly met her husband Jerry in Stockport 22 years ago, and they have a daughter named Madison.

She tragically lost her brother to cancer in 2018, and her family finds solace in the thought of them being reunited again.

Kelly’s husband, Jerry Gleeson, said: “I’m absolutely devastated. My beautiful wife died on Thursday, December 29, and to say I’m heartbroken is an understatement.

“22 wonderful years we had together – well, when I wasn’t annoying her. I was good at doing that.

“I never stopped loving you and I will always love you. I promise I’ll look after our baby girl. The dog is lost. She keeps sitting on the rug staring up at the door, waiting for you to come home.

“I keep trying to take comfort in how well liked she was, but it just makes me feel worse. How can someone so beautiful be taken so soon? I’m going to be so lost without you.”

Kelly’s family, who described her as “bubbly” and “the life of the party,” has set up a GoFundMe page to help cover funeral expenses.

Her daughter, Madison, added: “My mum was my best friend and we did everything together no matter what. She was the loudest person in the room, regardless of where we were or who she was with.

“She did everything for me and bought me everything I could possibly want. She always called me a “spoiled brat,” so now it’s my turn to repay the favor and give her the farewell she deserves.”
