Family pay tribute to girl killed in Rochdale collision

Marianne Haboc

The family of a girl who was pronounced dead at the scene of a Rochdale collision has paid tribute to her.

Shortly after 3.30pm on Monday 1 October 2018, police were called to reports of a serious collision between a red Range Rover and a pedestrian on Taylor Street.

The pedestrian – who has since been formally identified as 11-year-old Marianne Haboc – was sadly pronounced dead at the scene, despite the best efforts of the emergency services.

Paying tribute to her, her parents said: “Marianne, our beautiful daughter, was a natural born leader that could motivate friends to unite and do the same together regardless of age, race or belief.

“It was her own goal to be a top pupil of the year before leaving primary school. To achieve this, she had a little plan by coming to school early so she could meet more young pupils to play with and to improve her pro-activeness and relationship to them and her teacher.

“She loved her gymnastics and we are incredibly proud of what she achieved in that sport.

“She was a devoted Catholic and enjoyed gospel reading.

“Marianne will be sadly missed by all that knew her at her school, gymnastic club and church.”
