Tributes have been paid to a woman killed in a car crash which left her 21-year-old son fighting for his life.

She was travelling to the mosque to pray.

The 47-year-old, who was laid to rest in Wolverton Cemetery on Monday, had volunteered with Milton Keynes Islamic Society as an Arabic teacher for more than seven years and was an active member of various societies, including MK Muslim Association and MK Islamic Cultural Association, as well as religious and educational circles to empower women.

A spokesman for MKIS, said: “A tragic accident took away a caring, affectionate and dedicated wife, mother, sister and friend.

She was the most genuine person you could ever hope to meet or work with; she took pride in helping others.

“We as a community and family are naturally devastated by her loss, and our heartfelt condolences go out to her family and to those whose lives she touched.

“The large attendance of people at her funeral which was inexcess of 1,000 from all over the UK, was a true testament to such a good spirited individual.”

Hooda had been travelling as a passenger in a black Ford Focus, driven by her son, when it was in collision with an orange/white DAF box van.
