Rose was immensely supportive to Owen Paterson and to North Shropshire Conservatives. She will be hugely missed, and her contributions in the constituency over the years has been vast. A lady in every sense of the word! RIP

Numb at the news of Rose Paterson’s death. I’ll never forget her very practical kindness when she helped me when I was starting out. She was respected and admired by so many. My heart breaks for Owen and the kids.

It doesn’t seem honouring of Rose Paterson not to report her cause of death. If we all know what that usually implies, we should be honest and open about that difficult conversation, and maybe that would go miles towards helping people.

I am just sitting in my garden wondering how can I be reading about the death of an inspirational woman in Rose Paterson and a kind and gentle man in Liam Treadwell. Devastated, shocked, sad, disbelief. It is ok not to be ok. Please talk, please please talk to someone
