Kathleen Bidmead as Caroline Weatherby in the 1986 adaptation of The Murder at the Vicarage

Miss Caroline Weatherby is a woman living in St. Mary Mead. She had passed away before the events in The Mirror Crack'd from Side to Side.

In The Murder at the Vicarage, Reverend Clement describes her as "a mixture of vinegar and gush". At some point before the events of this novel, she had lost a gill of picked shrimps, and Miss Marple had solved the mystery because it reminded her of something else involving a sack of coals.

In The Body in the Library, Miss Weatherby is described as a "long-nosed acidulated spinster". She visits Miss Hartnell to tell her the news that a woman's body was found in Colonel Bantry's library.

In the short story The Case of the Perfect Maid, Miss Weatherby talks to Miss Marple in the post office, telling her about how Lavinia Skinner gave Gladys Holmes a written reference saying that she was willing, sober and respectable, but saying nothing about honesty. Miss Weatherby is of the opinion that this is significant. She also expresses the opinion that the Skinners will have difficulty finding another servant, and perhaps then Emily Skinner will have to "get up and do something".
