Mrs. Churchill was the wife of Mr. Churchill. A childless couple of the wealthy and influential Churchill family, they adopted Frank Churchill, their nephew, after the death of her sister-in-law, Mrs. Weston. They changed his last name to Churchill and shaped him to become a member of high society.
Mrs. Churchill was known to be extremely possessive of Frank. She forced Frank to delay his visit to Randalls numerous times, and was so intimidating that Frank only openly announced his engagement to Jane Fairfax after her death.
