The family of a woman who died following a road traffic collision in Watford have paid tribute to her.
At around 1.30pm on Friday 20 May a woman and a van were in collision on Hempstead Road.
Betty Shaer, aged 89, from Watford, suffered serious injuries and sadly died at the scene.
Paying tribute to Betty, her family said: “Betty was the much-loved mother of Jo and Caroline and grandmother of Anna and Jono. She was a keen reader, gardener and lover of classical music. After the death of her husband, Victor, in February 2021 she was determined to remain in the family home she loved, supported by her family and neighbours. She continued to visit Cheslyn Gardens regularly and complete the Telegraph cryptic crossword every day. She will be sadly missed.”
