A former bodybuilder and wife of a well-known Christchurch businessman has died suddenly.
Priscilla Freeman, 44, was on holiday in Hanmer with her family when she became unconscious in a room at Chalets Motel in Hanmer on Friday night.
Emergency services were called, but the mother-of-four could not be revived.
Police have referred her death to the coroner.
Freeman competed internationally as a bodybuilder at several Universe championships, including in 2003, before retiring from the sport.
She was married to Onyx Homes director Richard Freeman who fought to save her life.
He took to social media to pay tribute to “my baby, love of my life, my rock, my amazing wife”.
“There’s a hole that will never fill . . . Amazing mother, sister, daughter and lover,” he posted on Facebook.
“I tried to get you back but couldn’t and it kills me.”
Richard Freeman declined to comment when contacted on Monday.
