Biography: 

Along with her husband, Mrs. Burchett is the guardian of Susan Reed. The unnamed narrator repeats the local rumor that Susan may be her illegitimate child, but this is never confirmed. Mrs. Burchett seems to be more involved with Susan's care than Mr. Burchett. However, she easily succumbs to Susan's deceptions. According to the narrator, Mrs. Burchett doesn't know that when Susan becomes a teenager, she stops going to school and forges the report cards that Mrs. Burchett signs.

Note: 
CUT the line about Mrs. Burchett bringing Susan to barber shop the first time - too much plot summary.
