"Although she was 80, she was fit and she was active, and she had every reason to expect many more years with her family."

Tulip was banned from driving for three years - but the court heard that she gave up her licence immediately after the accident.

Describing how the loss had "completely devastated" the Nainby family, the judge said the victim's husband of 64 years, Peter, died months after the incident without her by his side.

"There is no sentence that I can give that will bring back Joyce Nainby for her family, or for you," the judge told the defendant.

The court heard that the two friends had been driving back together in the Skoda from a school reunion when the accident happened, with witnesses saying that Tulip, of Seghill,

The statement added that Geoffrey Nainby's father, Peter, was ill with both Parkinson's disease and cancer at the time of the crash, and died in July.

"Their final years could have been so different. Mum could and should have been here to look after Dad in his final months.

"Like so many others, we felt confident that terrible things only happen to other people, but then this happened to us."

Shaun Routledge, defending, said Tulip, who wore a purple coat and mopped away tears during the hearing, had written a letter of condolence to her friend's family.

"I have not come across, in over 30 years, a set of facts or circumstances that are similar to these," he told the court.

In a statement issued following the sentencing, Mrs Nainby's family said they were disappointed by the defendant's failure to take responsibility earlier.

They said: "Whilst we accept that the events of that day were a tragic accident caused through Mrs Tulip's carelessness, every action and decision made by her beyond that date has been made without any respect or consideration whatsoever for the feelings of our family.

"As a friend of our Mum's, we didn't seek punishment for Mrs Tulip, all we ever wanted was an acceptance of responsibility.

"Maybe naively, we expected her to 'do the right thing' from the start but, as that was not the case, we had no option other than to support a prosecution through the courts."

The statement added that, as a result of the delay between the incident and Tulip's sentencing, Peter Nainby had not been able to get closure before his death.
