Location Unknown

Season 3

While the mother was never seen in Season 3, she was living in Woodbury with her son and was among the residents to be brought to the prison.

Season 4

"30 Days Without An Accident"

This woman is sitting with a man and two children eating breakfast and greets Daryl as he walks by.


This woman managed to survive the attack on Cell Block D and was seen mourning the death of her child who was covered in a blanket in his cell. While Rick informs Carl, Michonne, and Maggie of what happened, the woman walks past them, weeping and holding the bloodied blanket that covered Owen.


This woman is a part of a group of residents, consisting of Jeanette, Noris' son, an elderly Woodbury man, and an older woman, brought to Cell Block A to be quarantined.


When Hershel is attacked by a zombified woman in Cell Block A, this woman comes to his aid. However, the woman is accidentally killed when another man's gun goes off, striking her. Moments later, the woman reanimates and is lured into the observation tower with the two other zombified patients. She is then killed by Hershel with a shotgun.


Killed By

As Noris tries to assists Hershel, who is pinned down by a walker, his reanimated son devours him. In the process of being devoured, he fires his gun in random directions which accidentally hits the woman in the chest, killing her instantly.

She reanimates and tries to attack Hershel but is put down by him.
