The youngest daughter of an internationally renowned jazz musician has died after being hit by a train.
Mary Stroman, the 16-year-old daughter of trombonist and singer Scott Stroman, was remembered as a “bright, clever and funny” teenager by her family after her death at a foot crossing on January 15.
Her family released a statement paying tribute to the Stroud Green teenager, who had briefly been a student at St Marylebone School in Westminster four years ago.
They said: “To all her friends and people who knew her, please remember Mary as a bright, clever and funny girl who was gentle and kind to everyone.
“Mary is now at peace with herself and it was an honour to have her as a daughter and sister.”
