Family's tribute to 'louder than life' gran, 46, who was found chopped up in country park

THE family of a gran who was found chopped up in a country park have today paid tribute to the "louder than life" 46-year-old.

Yvonne McCann's body was tragically found by a member of the public in Reddish Vale Country Park last week.

Her family today released a touching tribute for "funny, loud, caring and loving" Yvonne who raised four children and had two grandchildren.

They said: "There was never a quiet moment in our house, we knew we were loved unconditionally, and she taught us to stick up for ourselves, but also to be kind and to treat people right.

"Our Mum was never happier than when she had her family around her, and always put her children first.

"Mum was 'louder than life' – we often heard her belly laugh before we even saw her. She was quick to smile and had time for anyone.

“Mum never took life too seriously, she was always joking and laughing, and it’s difficult to find a photograph of her where she isn’t pulling a funny face or sticking her tongue out.

“There was nobody like our Mum.

“She was our world and we were hers, we have lost the heart of our family. Mum was the bond that kept us all together, and we feel numb and broken without her. We know she would want us to enjoy our life every bit as much as she did. It brings us comfort to know that she is now with our Grandparents who she dearly missed."

Yvonne's body was tragically found on May 25.

A man, Thomas McCann, has since been charged with murder.

He has been remanded in custody and will appear at Manchester Crown Court on Friday 7 August 2020.

Detective Superintendent Neil Jones, of GMP’s Major Incident Team, said: “This is an absolutely devastating incident.

"First and foremost, our thoughts are with the victim’s loved ones and specialist officers will do everything they can to support them."
