Jodie Marsh lays mother to rest Content Exchange

Jodie Marsh has laid her mother to rest.

The 41-year-old star paid tribute to her late mom Kristina after her battle with cancer.

In her eulogy, she shared: "I want to include this quote a friend gave me recently. 'On the darkest day when I feel inadequate, unloved and unworthy, I remember whose daughter I am and I straighten my crown.' My mum was fearless, loyal, brave, hard-working, kind, supportive, stylish, beautiful, elegant, classy and so ridiculously clever."In Alison's words, Mum was outwardly a stunningly beautiful serene swan, but so powerful underneath. What I've learned from Mum is to always believe in yourself, to never give up, to love with all your heart, to always be kind and to enjoy life as much as you possibly can. My mum was genuinely the most beautiful soul that ever lived. And that leads me perfectly into our first song, this song was written by my amazing partner Billy. He wrote it for Mum and Dad as their Christmas present last year and it's the story of their love."

At the ceremony, which took place in Essex on Friday (16.10.20), Jodie was supported by her partner, and she spoke of her delight that her mother got to see her "truly happy and in love".

Speaking about her musician boyfriend Billy Collins-Nuttall, she said: "She adored Billy and Billy adored her, they had their own unique bond and I take great comfort from that. Mostly, though, I take comfort from the fact Mum finally got to see me truly happy and in love. It was all she ever wanted for me and I'm so grateful that she got to know and love Billy."I know that she knew Billy would be there for me and take care of me, and I know she knew that Billy is the one I've been waiting all my life for."
