In the novel A Murder is Announced, Miss Marple mentioned one of her former parlourmaids. She was no good at all at waiting at table. Put everything on the table crooked, mixed up the kitchen knives with the dining-room ones, and her cap was never straight. Miss Marple kept her because she was so pleasant to have about the house - and because she used to make her (Miss Marple) laugh.

It was this maid who said that Florrie sat down just like a married woman.

The maid later married a Baptist Minister, and they had five children.

This character was mentioned because Diana Harmon reminded Miss Marple of her.
