A family have been left shocked and heartbroken after a mum suddenly died.

Airdrie woman Charlotte McCormack, known as Chazy, is being remembered as an “absolute diamond” after loved ones were devastated by the major loss.

The 47-year-old’s body “couldn’t fight anymore” and she passed away at University Hospital Monklands on Friday, January 12, after battling health issues.

Chazy was called “Big Nan” by her five grandchildren, Kai, Conlan, Harley, Allan and Tyler, whom she took great pride in.
