Played by: Ruth de Sosa

Indiana Jones' saintly mother. She dies in her early thirties.

  • Deceased Parents Are the Best: Indy's opinion of her after her death. Until then, see Good Parents.
  • Doomed by Canon: She was deceased by the time of Last Crusade's prologue, so she only appears in the "Kid Indy" episodes, which take place only a few years before her death.
  • Good Parents: Is this to Indy. She expresses her affection much more openly than her husband, and it's clear Indy is much closer with her than he is with Henry Senior.

  • Karma Houdini: In his first appearance, he manages to escape Egypt via boat before Lawrence can catch up to him.
