Heartbreak as ‘too young to die’ mum-of-10 loses two-month battle with Covid

A mum of ten has died, aged 54, following a two-month battle with covid despite signs of improvement after its symptoms returned and left her unable to breathe.

Sharon Winsper, who also had 11 grandchildren, died on December 9, after her body became too weak to fight the virus, coupled with another infection.

She had, at one point, developed breathing problems and ended up in a coma, which led to a stint in intensive care.

And now the daughter of Ms Winsper, who was a medium, has opened up about the heartbreak the family is experiencing – and is appealing for fundraising help to have the body to be buried in the Midlands, alongside other relatives, rather than in Merseyside where she lived.

Daughter Kerry Read told Birmingham Live: “Mum was too young to die.

“She celebrated her 54th birthday in hospital last month – we thought we would have a lot more years with her to make more memories.

“Mum was a kind-hearted, loving mother and couldn't do enough for anyone. She just thought it was a bad cold at first and spent about a week in bed, but then it got to the point she was struggling to breath.

“She was taken straight into intensive care in October with covid and put into a coma for over five weeks. She started to make a slow recovery and had a tracheotomy fitted to help with her breathing.

“Day by day, she was getting stronger and even started smiling and communicating with us. She began having physio and we believed things were starting to look positive. We were cautiously hopeful for the coming weeks and months.

“It came on so suddenly and severely – she had no fight left as this infection was quite severe and left her unable to breath by herself due to the damage in her lungs.”

A £4,500 fundraising appeal on Gofundme has been launched and balloon are being released in memory on Sunday, December 19, at Hall Road Beach in Crosby.
