Her daughter, Heather Woods, said; “We are understandably heartbroken but also relieved that after 8 long months we can finally place our loving mother to rest. She was an inspiration in so, so many ways, worldly wise and full of adventurous spirit.
“Enigmatic, strong and kind she was the sort of person who does not grace this earth often and her departure has left a gaping hole in our lives. A wonderful mother, sorely missed, deeply loved, never forgotten.”
