Great Aunt Dulcie

Character Analysis

Great Aunt Dulcie participated in the Abshires' Christmas dinner when Clare brings Henry to meet her family for the first time. Henry describes Dulcie as "pink-haired and tiny." When Clare's mom Lucille throws a fit about Mark ruining his chances by marrying Shannon just because she's pregnant, Dulcie straight-out reminds Lucille that she did the very same thing. This quickly shocks Lucille into silence.
