Mary Nelson was the wife of Charlie Nelson and close friend of Annie Sugden. At age 16, Mary married Charlie, who was 20 years her senior, and gave birth to their son, Fred, in 1933. Mary fell ill with tuberculosis in 1938 and died at home when Charlie refused to take her to hospital - a decision Annie would resent him for. Annie felt if Charlie had got Mary to hospital and she had been given proper medical care, she may have lived.
