Silvera, who played Rene Artois' long-suffering wife Edith in the hit wartime sitcom, died yesterday afternoon, aged 80.
Her agent and friend of 25 years, Barry Burnett, said: ``Carmen was diagnosed with lung cancer in April.
``She passed away peacefully in the actors' retirement home Denville Hall, in Northwood, west London.
``She celebrated her 80th birthday in June with friends and family and was cheerful right to the end.''
