Sheila Gillett, 75, was driving her 'beloved' silver Ford Mondeo when it struck Marlborough Town Hall on the High Street shortly before 1.45pm on Saturday, 25 July.
Her two sons, David and Paul, have thanked those who responded to the incident.
They said in a statement: "Mum was a loving, kind and caring mother, grandmother and great grandmother taken from us far too early.
"She was driving through Marlborough on Saturday to visit her deceased husband and son's grave, on her husband's birthday.
"She was immensely proud of her large family, who find the loss of such a wonderful family member a huge, sudden shock. Sheila will be sorely missed by everyone in the family and by everyone that knew her.
"She is now together with her beloved husband and son. Rest in peace.
"We'd also like to sincerely thank all those who responded to the incident, be they on duty, off duty or simply passers by."
A police spokesperson said officers' thoughts were with the family.
Anyone who witnessed the collision is asked to contact the police on 101 and quote log number 195 of July 25.
