Personal life[edit]

She was born in Caerwys, Flintshire in 1944, where a plaque can now be seen on the house where she was born. She worked as a teacher before taking up an acting career, and appeared mainly on Welsh language television, in comedy and children's programmes. For audiences in Wales, she played the character of Phyllis Doris, the teenaged daughter of the family in the series Ryan and Ronnie.[1]

She later appeared in several English-language sitcoms and soap operas. She lived with David Jason for eighteen years until her death from breast cancer, and accompanied him to Buckingham Palace in 1993 to receive his OBE.[2]
