Tributes have poured in for a mother-of-seven who was the "rock" of a Huyton family and "could put a smile on anyone's face".

The family of Tina Tai have vowed to "make her proud of us every day" after the doting mum died on March 23, aged just 46.

The grandmother-of-two, from Huyton, sadly died after she was diagnosed with cancer on New Year's Eve, 2019, and leaves behind a large family and partner of 23 years.

Tina "fought right up till the day she sadly passed away", her family said.

Paying tribute, her family said: "Our mum and Dad were together for 23 years and married for 14 years.

"Our dad would always be at work while our mum would be at home looking after us, we all have our own role in the house and we are completely lost without her, she was our rock, the person we could always go to and we all miss her so much.

"She was known for her sense of humour and there was never a dull moment when she was around, she could put a smile on anyone's face and she was the first person people would go to for advice.

"She is loved and missed by so many people. We promise to make her proud of us everyday. We love you and miss you so much, mum."

Since Tina passed away the community have rallied round the family to support them.

Boxing coach Kieran Flanagan, from Huyton ABC, has help to raise hundreds to help out one of their youngest boxers, Tina's daughter Maya Tai.

Speaking to the ECHO, Kieran, 34, said: "We found out Maya's mum had passed away, and I've done a few things for charity in the past, so I said I'll try to help that family out.

"Money's not going to bring her back, but it might take some of the stress off them. I set the page up, and the response was brilliant.

"It's exceeded what I expected really."

He added: "With what's been going on they'e not been able to have a proper funeral or a wake, and when you've lost someone and you're in the house you can't do much.

"That's why I wanted to help them out, that's what you should do in the community. The family are amazed it's been set up and people have wanted to help."
