According to the News & Star, Maureen Whittaker died from mesothelioma at the age of 58 in November last year - but her family remain unaware of where she would have come into contact with asbestos.
It is thought Ms Whittaker may have been exposed to the lethal substance during her time working on a production line at Robinson Willey Gas Fires in Liverpool.
Consequently, her widower Peter Whittaker has appealed for any of her former colleagues to come forward if they have any information regarding whether or not this is the case.
Mr Whittaker told the news source his wife - who also operated as a hospital catering assistant during her career - had been "a lively, fun loving person".
"It was heartbreaking to see her robbed of her independence. Our family has been devastated by her death," he added.
