The family of a popular cafe owner who died in a road crash have paid tributes to a "wonderful lady who will be missed by everyone".
A statement from the family of Julie Dibbs, who died in a crash on the A1120 in Ashfield between a Honda Civic, a Skoda Octavia and a coach on Monday, said she was a “ray of sunshine who lit up any room she entered”.
The 49-year-old leaves behind three sons - Harry, Joe and Charlie - as well as her husband Andy, parents Val and Ron and siblings Pete, Deb and Sue.
She has been described as a popular figure in the Mendlesham community where she owned the Deli at Chilli Farm just off the A140.
A statement from the family, released by Suffolk police, read: “This is an unimaginable situation we find ourselves in, with such a wonderful lady who will be missed by everyone.
“Julie was a ray of sunshine who lit up any room she entered.”
The driver of the coach was taken to hospital with minor injuries following the accident but no-one else has been hurt.
Police will continue their investigations.
