“Marlene had a fantastic sense of humour. We used to fall about the bed laughing sometimes.

Her only son, Dave Revitt, 44, said: “She was loved by all her family.”

The court heard that Ms Warwick died at her home on June 29 2011.

She suffered from conditions affecting her lungs and breathing including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and then later tardive dyskinesia (TD).

Complications with her prescribed medication was deemed ‘inept’ but not ‘clinically negligent’, by Assistant coroner for Derbyshire, James Newman.

Concluding, Mr Newman said Ms Warwick died of natural causes with a background of known and recognised complications of prescribed medication. Mr Newman also said contributing factors included TD, asthma, a reduction in eating and depression.

Ms Warwick is survived by her son, four sisters, brother and grandson.
