Jean Murray’s mother and Liz’s Grandma, she is a notable influence in Liz’s early life. Though Liz only meets her grandmother a handful of times, she’s struck by Grandma’s gentleness and attentiveness: unlike Liz’s own parents, Grandma listens patiently to everything Liz says, and answers every one of her questions. By this point in her life, Grandma is suffering from serious mental health problems, and exhibits symptoms of schizophrenia as well as senility. From Liz’s perspective, however, she’s just a gentle old woman.
