After the announcement, the cause of Valerie James’ death was not immediately disclosed.
However, according to reports, she died from natural causes and advanced age.
James and Valerie are survived by their two children, Sue, a daughter, and Steve, a son. Sue produces TV shows, and Steve produces music.
Their love story
Valerie Ashton and Sid James began dating in 1950 after meeting on a film set. Two years later, the loving couple married. Their marriage lasted 23 years until Sid died in 1976.
Mrs. James, despite having her own career, was perhaps best known for her relationship with Sid.
Sid had a public affair with Carry On co-star Barbara Windsor during their time together, which ended 16 months before his death.
Mrs. James stood by her husband despite his philandering, claiming that Ms. Windsor had seduced him and that he was frightened of her and her husband, Ronnie Knight.
