About AudreyEdit

Audrey, who is also the ex-wife of Ed Conner, Dan's dad, is also the mother in-law to Roseanne Conner and the paternal grandmother of Dan's children. Once owning a travel agency, Audrey has struggled with a history of mental illness, culminating when her son, Dan was forced to place her into a mental institution which resulted in her resenting Dan, even at one time, trying to kill him.




  • The series finale did not reveal whether or not Audrey's mental illness was reality or a storyline within Roseanne's book. It could be presumed that it's not, as Dan's time in California (wherein he had the affair), was revealed to be a part of Roseanne's book, as he had died the previous year from his heart attack.
