A family is mourning another tragedy, with a mother found dead just months after her daughter was allegedly murdered.

Lisa Ann Rush died on Monday, just four months after her 16-year-old daughter, Amber-Rose Rush, was allegedly murdered at a property in Dunedin, New Zealand in February.

The mother’s son Jayden Rush broke the tragic news on Facebook on Wednesday.

“I know most will already know but on Monday night my mother, Lisa Ann, departed the realm of the living to continue her journey alongside Amber Rose and to forever watch down over us in peace,” he wrote.

“Although we are all so devastated to see such an important part of our life gone, and it makes our sorrow that much deeper, we are all so glad that her suffering is now over and she can rest easy for all of eternity.

“Love you mum, you were all I focused my life on for the past four months. Don’t know what I’m gonna do now without ya but I’ll find a way.”

His sister Shantelle Rush commented: “We haven’t got much left but we will always have each other.”

Police told the Otago Daily Times the death of the mother was not suspicious.

Last month Ms Rush posted a picture of Amber-Rose on Facebook alongside a touching tribute.

“We will love you for eternity ambie, you have the most beautiful heart and soul, nothing and no one can take that away from us … you are the sweetest ,kindest, most caring, loving girl, I am more than blessed to be your mum, my life was over the moment you were taken,” she wrote.
