Tribute has been paid to a ‘vibrant’ Red Lodge woman who was found dead last Tuesday after going missing two days earlier.

Ginette Rose, 36, who was known as Netty, went missing on the evening of November 14.

Police searches were carried out in several locations last Monday and Tuesday, assisted by Sulsar and the NPAS (National Police Air Service) helicopter, along with the Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service drone.

After family and members of the community joined the search on Tuesday, Netty’s body was found in woodland off Tuddenham Road, in Herringswell, at 3.30pm.

Sid Sanders, Netty’s partner of 18 years, described her as a ‘fun and lively’ person.

“Netty had an infectious laugh and was very family oriented,” said Sid.

“There wasn’t a day she wasn’t with our children Hayden, 15, and Ruby, 11. She was a fun-loving, vibrant mum. This was out of the blue – a total shock.

“We are taking things one day at a time, but there is an element of having to wait before we can sort some things out.”

Sid said the family, who had lived in Red Lodge for 10 years, had kept themselves to themselves day to day but had been very touched by the community response when Netty went missing.

An inquest will be held at a later date.

Donna Burchett, of Red Lodge, lived near Ginette and said they had always stopped to chat in the street after their children attended primary school together.

Donna has set up a Justgiving page to raise funds for the family, initially hoping to raise £1,000. So far, the fund has topped £2,000.

“The response has been amazing,” said Donna.

“I had so many messages about people wanting to buy flowers. I thought the family might end up with 500 bunches of flowers, but it would be better for them to have the money to spend on what they want or need, which is why I thought it would be a good idea for the Justgiving fund for donations.”
