SALLY FARMILOE-NEVILLE

Sally Farmiloe-NevilleSally Farmiloe-Neville died peacefully on Tuesday aged 60, surrounded by her family.

The actress, who first became famous in the BBCTV 1985-1990 series Howard's Way, had fought a long battle against Breast Cancer, which finally spread to her liver and bones. However that didn't deter her from living life to the full. She was always on the red carpet, or with a glass of Champagne, looking cheerful and glamorous, even as Chemotherapy changed her hairstyle, but not her cheeky smile.

Sally was always organising an event. From book launches to charity fundraisers, latterly for the Royal Marsden Hospital, where she was a regular patient at the receiving end of superb care, and Yes To Life. Sally was a beacon of optimism in the face of a dreadful illness, which although disabling, never stopped her from appearing in front of the cameras, despite the great effort she would finally make to leave her home.

My Left Boob - A Cancer Diary, chronicled her fight against the disease. She was in the process of writing a sequel. Ironically, one of Sally's last commitments was to attend the funeral of her photographer friend, who was also dying of Cancer, and receiving Sally's caring spirit and kindness.

Sally Farmiloe-Neville leaves a unique void in the lives of her family and many friends, but the abiding memory of her fizzy warm personality, generous spirit, and courage beyond measure, will live in their hearts and in their minds.
