Biography: 

When Chick meets her in her cabin, he sees "a tiny almost doll-sized woman much darker" than her husband Lucas; in person she is wearing "an immaculate white cloth on her head," the headrag that is the cultural badge of black women in Yoknapatawpha and that is missing in the photograph of her with her husband that disorients Chick when he sees it a bit later (10). Four years later Chick learns that she has died.
