Greater Manchester Police (GMP) is continuing to appeal for witnesses after an elderly woman died following a collision.
On 27 January 2017, a black Nissan Navara collided with a woman on Heaton Moor Road, Stockport. The car was driving north towards the junction when it hit the elderly woman who was crossing the carriageway. This occurred at around 10.55am.
The woman was later identified as 91-year-old Joan Pimblett. She was taken to hospital where she sadly died on 30 January 2017.
Joan’s family have paid tribute to her. The family said that Joan was “well known to many who lived and grew up in the area”. They say that some will remember her as a former dinner lady at Didsbury Road School.
Joan’s family said that she was “an independent and active pensioner”, who had many friends.
“She will be sadly missed by both family and friends, tragically taken before her time”.
