THE Family of a young woman who was ‘always smiling’ have told of their shock after she died tragically in her own home.

Lauryn McIlloney took unwell and became unresponsive before she sadly passed away after paramedics tried to revive her.

Tributes have now been paid to the 30-year-old by her brother who was left devastated by a frantic phone call from Lauryn’s partner to say she had fallen ill on Sunday, February 16.

William McIlloney has told how he spoke to his sister just the day before to talk about what she had gotten for Valentine’s Day.

He told the Advertiser: “I spoke to her the day before she died, she was chatting away telling me she got perfume from her partner for Valentine’s.

“The next morning, I was told by her partner ‘I can’t wake your sister up’ I knew there and then that she was gone.

“We called an ambulance and paramedics worked on her for 50 minutes, but they couldn’t save her.”

Lauryn grew up in Ayr with her brother who recently moved to Glasgow. The pair come from a big family who have been left heartbroken with the loss.

Her death comes just four years after her dad took his own life which hit ‘everyone hard’.

He said: “When our dad died, she just wanted to be there for my gran. Over the last couple of years, she was looking to settle down. It hit us all hard.”

William has been overwhelmed by touching tributes to his sister sent in by friends and family.

He said: “There’s been so many people contacting me just saying they can’t believe it, she was always smiling she was always happy, they just can’t believe it happened.

“She always just tried to help people. You couldn’t ask for a better friend that’s what everyone keeps saying.”

We told how police initially launched a probe into the tragedy but are not treating the death as suspicious.

Mystery still surrounds the death, with a post-mortem to take place on March 4.
