Fiona Taylor, who ran Taylor & Campbell dental clinic in Portland Square, Carlisle with her husband Bill, died from a brain haemorrhage.

Close friend Sue Glendinning said the 54-year-old got up for work complaining of a headache.

She then collapsed at home and was rushed to hospital where she later died. Mrs Glendinning, of Carlisle, said Mrs Taylor, who had a 21-year-old son Alex, had an “extremely vibrant personality”.

She added: “She was full of life and had a fabulous sense of humour.

“She lived for the day and didn’t worry about tomorrow. She loved to travel and was a fantastic skier.

“She was very family orientated and did everything for Bill and Alex. She was also a proud Scot and loved sport. I was absolutely devastated when I found out Fiona had passed away – I had known her for about 10 years and I can remember when I first met her as if it were yesterday.”

Mrs Taylor was also a former junior and youth secretary at Carlisle Rugby Club.

Secretary David Morton said: “Fiona will be remembered at the club for her infectious sense of humour, her administrative efficiency and ongoing concern for the wellbeing of the young people at our club.

“We will all remember her with pride and hope that her family she has left behind will derive comfort from the fact that she was popular too outside the close family circle.”

A celebration of her life took place at Carlisle Crematorium on Monday at 11am.

Donations are to be divided equally between the Eden Valley Hospice and the Intensive Care Unit at the Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle.
