The husband of a Northamptonshire pensioner who drowned in the River Nene said his late wife was a “kind, loving and generous person”.
Dorothy Marilyn Toseland, of Church Street, Woodford, was found by a family member shortly after she died on March 7 of this year.
The 64-year-old had recently been reported missing and police put out an appeal to help find her.
During an inquest into her death held in Kettering yesterday (Thursday), Northamptonshire senior coroner Anne Pember read out a statement by Mrs Toseland’s husband of 42 years, John.
He said: “We had a very happy marriage, we loved travelling together and Marilyn enjoyed her cooking.
“She was a kind, loving and generous person who enjoyed life and being with her family.
“I am still totally devastated.
“She was loved so much and will be missed by all who knew her.”
