The first female Speaker of the House of Commons died Sunday:
She served as Speaker from 1992 to 2000, before going on to become a baroness in the House of Lords from 2001.
The current Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle described her as "an inspirational woman" who was known for her "no-nonsense style".
She was the Labour MP for West Bromwich West from 1973 to 2000.
"To be the first woman Speaker was truly groundbreaking and Betty certainly broke that glass ceiling with panache," Sir Lindsay said.
"Betty was one of a kind. A sharp, witty and formidable woman - and I will miss her."
