It is with enormous sadness that we report the death of arts consultant Frances Medley, aged just 44.

Fran, as she was known by the very many people she has worked with over the years, had been debilitated by the multiple sclerosis that was diagnosed in 2009 and it appears that it all became too much for her.

A lively, intelligent and perceptive character, Fran's practical approach to problem solving made her an ideal Chief Executive for Cultural Enterprise Service, which she joined after acting as caretaker Chief Executive for the Arts Council of Wales at a time of enormous upheaval and change for its staff.

Since the news of her death became public tributes have been pouring in from all over Wales.

In typical style, Fran said goodbye on her blog

The funeral will be held at Thornhill Cemetary and Cardiff Crematorium, Cardiff at 3pm Monday 07 October
