Tributes paid to 'beloved' pregnant teacher found dead in Glasgow home | The Sun

TRIBUTES have been paid to a "beloved" teacher after she was found dead in a home in Glasgow.

Marelle Sturrock, originally from Wick, Caithness, was found dead inside a house on Jura Street in the city's Craigton yesterday morning.

Cops were called to the address at 8:40am on Tuesday where they made the tragic discovery and launched a probe into the "unexplained" death.

Marelle was a teacher at Sandwood Primary School and was also pregnant.

Devastated parents have paid tribute to her following the devastating news, as they honoured the "kind and wonderful" teacher.

One parent said: "My daughter's favourite teacher from primary school, such a kind and wonderful teacher. So sad. My love to all the family and all the staff at Sandwood Primary."

A second wrote: "Absolutely heartbreaking, such a beautiful soul. Thank you for teaching our children."

A third person said: "Our community are in mourning for this beautiful soul. Thinking of all family, friends and Miss Sturrock's pupils at Sandwood Primary at this devastating time."

Others were left saddened by the fact Marelle never got the chance to be there for her own baby.

One person paid tribute saying: "She taught our children picked them up when they fell encouraged them and taught them to believe in themselves, It's devastating she never got the chance to do the same with her own wee baby."
