Marin Evans, 25, from Bradford, was the passenger in a Ford Focus involved in the fatal collision on August 13 at Okehampton.

The family of a young woman from Bradford, near Holsworthy, who was killed in a collision have paid tribute to her.

Marin Evans, 25, died following a collision on the A3079 Thorndon Cross at Okehampton on Saturday, August 13.

She was the front seat passenger in a grey Ford Focus which was in collision with a red Peugeot 206. Marin was declared deceased at the scene.

Marin attended Bradford Primary School, Holsworthy Community College, and went on to complete her studies at Petroc.

She won an apprenticeship with TUI Travel Group as an activities instructor, and worked at a number of venues where summer-school students from other countries learning English enjoyed after-hours swimming, fencing, archery, and other activities under her supervision.

Her family said she worked for a season at a ski-resort in Chamonix, returning with a love of crepes.

She settled in Okehampton and travelled each day to her job in Exeter, but she dreamed of world travel and visiting her cousins in New York.

Her family said in a statement: “Marin grew up on a farm and was equally at ease in her wellington boots and scruffy farm coat as she was in her designer trainers, make-up, and glamorous clothes.

“Marin was equally enthusiastic gathering a flock of sheep as she was rounding-up a group of friends for a night-out.

“All of her family are heartbroken and she will be sadly missed by her Mum, Dad, brother Kaspar and by her many friends.”
