The London Ambulance Service (LAS) has paid tribute to a much-loved and highly dedicated paramedic who died on Sunday 20th September.
Eleanor Marr was aged just 36 when she died three days before what would have been her 37th birthday.
Paying tribute to Ellie, Garrett Emmerson, Chief Executive of the London Ambulance Service, said:
“It is with great sadness that I announce the sudden death of Eleanor Marr on Sunday 20 September 2020.
“She was 36 when she died but would have turned 37 on Wednesday (23 September).
“Eleanor – known as Ellie – was a paramedic based at Hillingdon ambulance station.
“She worked for the Service for nearly ten years, joining as a call handler in November 2010.
“Ellie was a much loved and respected Paramedic at Hillingdon Group and will be dearly missed by her friends and colleagues.
“Our thoughts and sympathy are with her parents and her sister and all her friends and colleagues”.
