Much has been mentioned by Mary about her mother since Mary first appeared in Coronation Street. There is a little confusion, not least in our house, over whether her mother is still alive, or dead. I thought she was dead but Sunny Jim reckons she's alive.

Mary often talks about her mother in the present tense, as if she is still alive. Does anyone know for sure about Mary's mother being dead or alive?
