A widow who received 16,000 cards from strangers for her 100th birthday has died.
Winnie Blagden, who was by far one of the most popular centenarians around, had no surviving family after her husband George passed away 30 years ago.
So when she turned 100 in May this year, well-wishers threw her a surprise birthday bash, after a Facebook appeal by BBC Radio Sheffield went viral.
The post was seen by six million people and over 16,000 cards were sent to the birthday girl from as far as Australia, New Zealand, Romania and Japan.
Mrs Blagden died at her home in Sheffield on Sunday, a BBC spokeswoman said.
