Gill Adams died from suspected carbon monoxide poisoning at her bed and breakfast on Bedford Road in St Ives yesterday. Her three dogs were also found dead in the house. Neighbours have issued this statement.
Gill was a sassy, loveable lady who was very much at the heart of the street. Gill was always helpful to neighbours, including taking meals to people, looking after other people's dogs and happy to chat. She loved animals, especially her dogs, who were friendly and well-behaved. Many people in the town knew her too, and others through the bed and breakfast. It's a huge shock and she will be greatly missed. We are all upset and our thoughts are with her family.
