Karen Travers' mother, first seen visiting her in Wentworth in and very unsympathetic to her plight, seeming more concerned how a retrial for Karen would affect her relationship with her new man friend. Later tracked down by Steve Wilson and persuaded to be a character witness at Karen's retrial. This helps Karen get a lighter sentence. She is seen again when Karen is in hospital after being shot by David O'Connell.
Played by Carmel Millhouse who later appears as Mrs Beamish
