Tributes as Beverley Sister Joy dies aged 91

By Kerri-Ann Roper

Singer Joy Beverley's family has paid tribute to "the most wonderful woman" after she died at the age of 91.

Her daughter Vicky said: "She was the most wonderful woman and inspiration, a wonderful mother and an unbelievable icon.

"We're going to miss her desperately but she's with our dad which is where she would want to be now. They loved each other so very much and she's missed him so."

Beverley, one of the three members of 1950s group the Beverley Sisters, is believed to have died on Monday after she reportedly suffered a stroke last week.

She was married to Wolverhampton Wanderers and England captain Billy Wright, and they were described as the Posh and Becks of the day.
