Next Page: Meet the central cast of Mary Worth
Share with others:
Born "about 60 years ago" in Jennings, Ohio, Mary is a graduate of Denison University, a former teacher and the widow of John "Jack" Worth, a Wall Street wizard who left a sensible portfolio providing her with a comfortable but not generous income. Although she once lived in New York City, Mary now makes her home in Santa Royale, Calif., where she is an active volunteer at the local hospital. Thanks to her long occupancy, neighbors consider Mary the "unofficial manager" of The Charterstone Condominium Complex.
Victoria "Toby" Cameron
Mary's close friend and neighbor at Charterstone. Toby is the "thirty-something" second wife of Professor Ian Cameron. Although she is an accomplished artist specializing in miniatures, Toby seems to spend most of her time at Mary's kitchen table, sipping coffee and repeating neighborhood gossip.Ian Cameron, Ph.D.
Professor of English literature and creative writing at UCSR (University of California at Santa Royale). Beneath his bluster and pomposity this Scottish-born victim of "The Hemingway Complex" is a gentle teddy bear. Ian is the neighborhood "Greeter" and, by his own modest admission, the resident expert on everything.Jefferson Cory, M.D.
The newest addition to the permanent cast. Jeff hopes (in vain, perhaps) to become Mary's "significant other." The recently widowed former chief of staff of the local hospital describes himself as semi-retired but continues to assist his physician children (daughter Adrian and son Drew), at the family clinic he founded.◄RETURN TO MAIN STORY
