A “caring, wonderful” mum-of-two died after losing her sense of self-worth, her father has said.
Amber Fosker, 30, passed away in July this year after she was found hanged at her home in Ipswich.
Her father Peter Fosker described his “beautiful” daughter as a “brilliant” mother whose daughters, aged 12 and five, were “the centre of her world” at an inquest into her death yesterday.
But in a letter read out to the court by assistant Suffolk coroner Kevin McCarthy Mr Fosker said he felt his daughter “could not be without” the person she loved and – therefore had “lost her sense of purpose”.
The 30-year-old had experienced a break-up and had previously suffered with depression, the inquest heard.
She was found hanged at her home in Ipswich on July 17, and despite efforts made by paramedics to save her, Ms Fosker was pronounced dead at the scene.
Her medical cause of death was recorded as suspension by ligature by pathologist Dr Chapman and toxicology tests carried out by Dr Andrews found no trace of alcohol or drugs.
Paying tribute to the 30-year-old, Mr Fosker and her aunt June Baker said: “She [Amber] was a lovely, outgoing young woman who was independent and prepared to face life head on.
“She was a wonderful, caring mother to her two young girls and they were the centre of her world.
“She will be sorely missed and is loved by all those who knew her.”
After considering all the evidence brought before him, Mr McCarthy recorded a conclusion of suicide.
He expressed his condolences to Ms Fosker’s family and friends.
