7-7-2008: Tributes have been pouring in this week for mum-of-five Susan Dare, 43, of Hawthorne Grove, Withycombe. Mrs Dare died after an alleged hit-and-run accident in the early hours of Sunday as she walked home with friends after a night out in Littleham.

Floral tributes were on Sunday left in the car park of the Clinton Arms at the spot where the vehicle had stopped.

Mrs Dare, who was divorced, had five children, Steven, Martin, Sammie, David and Simon.


Sue, we all grew up together in Broad Park Road. What a childhood we had - climbing trees, playing football in the street. Those were memories we will never forget. All the trips we went on together, cricket matches and football, nights out as we grew up - things we will never forget. Our thoughts are with Aunty Anne, Scotty, Ralf, Marcus, Nighel, Marion, Linda and all of Sue's children. RIP love Theresa Suzanne xxx

I was shocked when I found out what had happened. Sue was an honest person who loved her children and was still haunted by the memories of what had happened to her oldest son. She always spoke of her children and how she loved them. I feel nothing but sympathy for her family. I can only offer my condolences to all affected by this tragedy.The family of the person that caused the accident must be suffering too, but he must face the after affects of what he has done and I know that this is going to affect his family more. Sue's children have lost a mother, her mother has lost a daughter and now she must cope alone. I send my heartfelt condolences to everyone involved especially her mother and children....r.i.p Sue


Sue was larger than life and a great friend. She will be sadly missed by all those of us that knew her. My heart goes out to her family. RIP Sue, reunited with your beloved son Steven.

I had known Sue for years, through mutual friends and would like to offer my condolences on her death. Sue was a lovely lady and a real grafter. However hard she worked and however she felt herself, she was always able to make others laugh, with a smile or her genuinely off the wall personality. Exmouth is an emptier place for your passing Sue, you will be greatly missed by all those who knew you. God bless you.

i hadn't known Sue for that long. I was that pub that night and spoke to her an hour earlier before she died. We would have been walking home with her, but that night we had our car. She seemed like a willing and outgoing person, who always had a smile on her face and I shall miss her dearly
