THE family of a well-known Oswestry fishmonger who died earlier this year says she will be sadly missed by relatives, friends and customers alike.

Delsie Williams was the owner of Crofts Fish Shop in Oswestry with her beloved husband Keith Williams for many years and they were very well-known and respected in the town.

Speaking after the inquest into her , her granddaughter Jamie Lee Williams paid tribute to her, and gave an insight into the love shown for her.

Delsie was especially well known for her pickled onions.

After retirement Delsie became a well-loved dog sitter in her home and befriended many of her clients who always trusted her with their dogs – she will be sadly missed by many of her customers.

"As a family we will never get over what has happened; Delsie was such a kind, caring and generous mother, nan and great-nan to us all. She has left a hole in our hearts.

"Delsie will be greatly missed by her daughter Carol, son-in-law Craig, my sister Tammy and I, and her lovely little great granddaughter Scarlett Lucy-Beau.

"She will also be dearly missed by her good friend Sue Lee."

Shropshire Coroner John Ellery recorded a conclusion of suicide.
