Michelle Kiss, from Lancashire, was among those killed in the Manchester attack, her family said in a statement released by Greater Manchester Police.
Michelle had been at the Ariana Grande concert with her young daughter on the night of the explosion.
The mother of three was described in the statement as a loving wife, mother, daughter and sister.
"Family was her life and we are all obviously devastated by her loss. She has been taken away from us, and all that love her, in the most traumatic way imaginable," the statement read. "We hope to draw from the courage and strength she showed in her life to get through this extremely difficult time."
