Jane Tweddle-Taylor, a mother of three, from Blackpool had gone to the Manchester Arena with a friend, to pick up the friend's daughter. She has been confirmed as another victim of the terror attack.
She was a receptionist at South Shore Academy in Blackpool.
"Jane was a truly wonderful friend and colleague to all of us at South Shore Academy. As our receptionist, she was in many ways, the public face of the school and she represented us amazingly in this role," Jane Bailey, principal of South Shore Academy, said in a statement.
"We have received numerous messages of condolences from parents, students, community members and colleagues across Blackpool for which we are very grateful. All of them say the same things about our lovely Jane... bubbly, kind, welcoming, funny, generous... the list goes on."
