is the loving mother of Leslie. She is a writer just like her husband Bill and doesn't care what other people think about her, just like we see in Leslie. They treat Leslie and Jesse more like an equal and another adult than a child. We never hear of her having any problem with Leslie suddenly adopting a puppy, or going to church with Jesse or spending so much time out of the house unsupervised in Terabithia. She is portrayed by Judy McIntosh.

When Leslie dies we see that it crushes her heart. All her joy and excitement about being on the farm completely dissipates with Leslie's loss, and they just get out of town as fast as they can.
