The family of a 53 year old woman who died in a fire in Chippenham have paid tribute to her.
Karen Archard, who was 53 and from the town, was found by firefighters in Sainsbury's car park on 7th August. Police are not treating her death as suspicious.
Her family have issued this statement:
“Karen was a loving, caring and thoughtful Mum and Nan, who will be greatly missed. She had suffered most of her life, battling against mental illness, which can be severely misunderstood. She was a happy and joyful Mum and Nan who will be sadly missed by all those who knew and loved her.
We would like to thank all the people who came forward and helped the police with their enquiries and the police for handling this matter discreetly and delicately.
We would like to be left to grieve in peace and we hope that people will respect these wishes.”
