Pat Jones was Debbie Jones's alcoholic adoptive mother.
Pat adopted Debbie after Debbie's 13-year-old mother Charity Dingle was forced to give her up to Pat, who was a friend of Charity's father Obadiah. Pat brought Debbie up on a council estate until she was admitted to hospital in December 2002 so Debbie was placed with foster parents Paddy and Emily Kirk for a few days. Debbie went back to live with Pat but her condition worsened and Debbie was re-fostered by Paddy and Emily. Pat died in hospital on 26th February 2003.
