HEARTFELT tributes have been paid to a “beautiful and cheeky” daughter who has died just three days before her 21st birthday.

Chloe Webb, who had lived with epilepsy, global development delay, and curvature of the spine since she was born, lost her life on Friday.

Her family, from Laindon, have been left devastated, and have launched a fundraiser to “give her the best send off possible.”

A whopping £3,000 has been raised in a matter of days.

Echo: Chloe and her familyChloe and her family

The 20-year-old died after suffering from an epileptic fit on Thursday, but the full cause of her death is yet to be established.


Doctors said she only had around 12 years to live when she was born.

Trevor Webb, her stepdad, 43, said: “I only met Chloe in 2015, but instantly I knew she was a wonderful person.

“I had never met her before, and within seconds of me sitting down, she had nicked my baseball cap. She was really cheeky and a real character.

“She loved everything, and would wave at everybody she met.

“She was unable to talk, but all she wanted was to be around people.”

Donations have flooded in from friends and family, as well as from people they haven’t met.

Emma, Chloe’s mum, thanked everyone who has donated to the fundraiser.

The family-of-five hope to have a horse-drawn carriage for her funeral.

Mr Webb added: “She was only three days to have the keys to the rest of her life.

She could make you laugh out loud without saying anything.

“She deserved so much more than life gave her. She was born special.

“Chloe would give the best hugs, especially when I came home from work.”

At Mr and Mrs Webb’s wedding in August, they bought Chloe a wedding dress, as they knew she would never be able to get married.

The 20-year-old walked down the aisle with the couple.
