Biography: 

She is described as “a stout woman, handsome once, graying now and with a neck definitely too short, who looked not harried at all but choleric” (252). She is impatient with her husband, the deputy sheriff, and preoccupied with her own concerns; her rapid movements between kitchen and dining room suggest her lack of interest in her husband's account of a black man's lynching.
