Heartfelt tribute after a fatal crash in Cornwall

Published by Emma Carton at 9:37am 26th June 2019.

The family of a woman who died in a serious crash in Cornwall have described her as a "bright light".

Michelle Lorrain Dickens from Redruth lost her life when two cars collided on the main road to St Agnes.

Her relatives have released an emotional tribute to the 60-year-old who, up until recently, worked for the NHS.

The collision happened as Michelle was travelling home to Skinners Bottom and closed the B3277 for around seven hours.

"Our daughter Michele was tragically killed in a vehicle road accident whilst on her journey home to Skinners Bottom. 

"Michele, the eldest of our four children leaves behind her partner of 25 years Christopher Earl.

"Well known and much loved by her friends and family, Michele, up until recently worked as a Podiatrist for the NHS. 

"As a fun loving woman with a generous non-judgemental nature she had a wide social circle of friends.  

"Always ready to help others she was a bright light that in our hearts will never be dimmed by time but remembered with affection and joy for the very gift of her being".
