In a statement, her family said they “devastated and heartbroken” at the loss of a “much-loved wife, mother, sister, grandmother and great grandmother”.

It continued: “Liz died peacefully last night at home with her loving family around her.

“She has been the love, light and inspiration in our lives and we are bereft at her passing.”

Antony Cotton said he was “devastated” by the loss of a “brilliant friend”.

Derek Griffiths wrote: “You’ll be missed. Ta-ra chuck”.

We extend our heartfelt condolences and sympathy at this very sad time to Liz’s devoted husband Don, her loving children Graham, Dawn, Ann and Julie, their families and her six grandchildren and three great grandchildren.

“We have been blessed to have Liz in our lives, as she was such a kind, considerate and caring friend and colleague.”

She returned for a one-off appearance as Vera’s ghost in 2010 for Tarmey’s final scenes.

She later said of life in a soap: “It does take over your life.

“People don’t realise. They think you’ve had a charmed life. They don’t see that you’ve brought up four children and learnt lines on the train.”

Born Sylvia Butterfield in Leeds in 1938, the actress was best known by her professional name Elizabeth or Liz Dawn.

She left school at 16 and worked selling light bulbs in Woolworths, as well as in a local tailoring factory, as a cinema usherette and shoe salesgirl.

She began her showbusiness career as a nightclub singer. By the late 1960s she ventured into acting, often taking small parts in TV programmes as well as appearing in commercials.

During the 1970s Dawn appeared in a variety of programmes, including All Creatures Great And Small and Colin Welland’s play Leeds United.

In 2000, Dawn was chosen as the Lady Mayoress of Leeds and was awarded an MBE in October of that year for services to charity, having helped to raise hundreds of thousands of pounds for hospitals in the Manchester and Leeds areas.

She campaigned for the British Lung Foundation, fronting campaigns to raise awareness.

Dawn had four children and was married twice – to miner Walter Bradley in 1957, with whom she had her first child, and to electrician Donald Ibbertson in 1965.
