FAMILY and friends of "the perfect daughter" are trying to come to terms with her sudden death at the age of 21.
Becky Unett returned home from work early last Saturday because she was feeling unwell, and fell unconscious.
Her mum and brother, ambulance crews and hospital staff were powerless to save her life.
The cause of her death is not yet known and is the subject of a coroner's inquest.

"She was the perfect daughter," said her mum Beverley, whose Longlevens home is packed with cards and flowers from devastated family and friends.
"I can honestly say she never did anything wrong.
"She was 21 but she was so family-orientated and wanted to be at home, that I do at least feel lucky to have spent so much time with her."
Beverley, speaking on behalf of her husband Richard too, said they all shared a very close relationship.
"She loved spending time with me and Richard when many her age want to leave.
"And her little brother George effectively had two mums – she doted on him."
The former Longlevens Infant and Junior School, and Churchdown School pupil celebrated her 21st birthday in May and had just spent two idyllic weeks at the family's favourite holiday haunt of Shaldon in Devon.
"That's where she loved to be - with us, and her boyfriend Martin too. They were perfect together."
She and Martin Robertson met on Christmas Eve in 2007 after she started out at Sainsbury's in Barnwood with a Saturday job.
"She had everything worked out - she would say they could move to Devon and transfer to a Sainsbury's there," said Beverley, 46.
"She was saving hard with Martin for a home of their own."
Staff at the Sainsbury's store are trying to come to terms with Becky's sudden passing, and have urged Beverley to continue visiting the supermarket where her daughter was a team leader in electrical goods and clothing.
She was well liked at Longlevens RFC too where her brother George plays - she has even been on tour with her dad.
She loved cooking - and being organised.
"She had a list for everything," said her mum. "She had even made a note for herself to check with me that I'd paid the deposit on our holiday next year."
Her life ended suddenly and unexpectedly on Saturday.
"She had been to the doctors on Thursday with a pain below her ribcage and she was given something for it," said Beverley, whose home was besieged by Becky's friends after they had heard the news of her death.
Two days later, a touching photographic tribute to Becky, compiled by her friends, was delivered to the family home.
"She came home early from work on Saturday because she wasn't feeling well, then I went upstairs and she was in the bathroom.
"She was on the floor, lying down. It didn't look like she had suddenly collapsed but had lay down and lost consciousness."
She dialled 999 and she and George performed cardio-pulmonary resuscitation on her with the help of an ambulance control room operator.
"They were brilliant, they kept us calm and told us what to do.
"Then all of a sudden we had paramedics in the house, who also were superb and they took her to hospital."
She was officially pronounced dead at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, where Beverley works as a receptionist.
"I have never seen so many professional people in tears, they were so affected by what happened.
"Everyone tried so hard for Becky.
"I have to take comfort from the fact that she was so happy, and won't have to face losing us. That's all I can think of."
