Gemma Sleeman, aged 34 from Bodmin, was one of two people who died after a collision on the B3266 between Bodmin and Camelford.
Gemma’s husband, Matthew, said:
“I can’t express in words the devastation, shock and disbelief I feel with the sudden loss of my amazing, beautiful wife Gemma.
“She was so kind and thoughtful, always putting the needs of others first which was reflected in her work as a residential care worker for children with complex needs.
“Gemma will be missed not only as my wife and soulmate, but as a much loved daughter, sister, auntie, niece and loyal friend.”
Emergency services were called around 12.10pm on Friday 19 January after a collision between a silver Skoda Fabia and a blue Citroen Xsara Picasso on the B3266.
Gemma, who was driving a Skoda, sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene.
The driver of the Citroen, a 30-year-old man from St Austell, suffered multiple serious injuries and was taken to Derriford Hospital in Plymouth. He died of his injuries in hospital on Wednesday 24 January.
Two other women, both passengers in the Citroen, were also injured in the collision and were taken to Derriford Hospital for treatment.
