The daughter of hospital patients’ champion Jessie Winyard, whose funeral takes place today, has paid tribute to her ‘hero’ mother.

Jessie, of Oak Green, Abbots Langley, who would have been 75 on Saturday, was a larger-than-life Londoner with bags of energy and commitment who liked to find solutions and did not bear grudges.

Her daughter, Joanne Port, 42, of De Havilland Way, Abbots Langley, said: “She has always been my hero. We’ve had so many people saying she was their best friend.”
