She threw the children out a window into the arms of bystanders, by the time firefighters reached Finley she had collapsed and died from smoke inhalation.
Four of the children have been treated and released and the fifth child is in good condition.
Tomorra leaves behind a 9-year-old son, and 3-year-old twins, a girl and a boy, two nieces 5 and 2 years-old.
