Agnes Burgoyne

Ruth‘s mother Agnes needs a hobby… at least according to Noah.

According to Agnes, of course, she has a hobby: monitoring her lazy son-in-law all day and critiquing him wherever possible… and she sees a world of possibilities.

Her other hobby is keeping tabs with her friends at the country club and finding out which of their sons are getting divorced so she can nag Ruth to trade Noah in. Oh, and spending Frank‘s money at the local antiques shops, of course.

She is a doting grandma to Ursula and Valerie, however, and it does seem Ursula might well grow up to be much more similar to Grandma Agnes than to Granny Thorsen, who unfortunately spends far too much time in Florida and at bingo to have much influence.
