For the daughter of Jack and Annie, see Joan Davies.

Joan Walker was the mother of Louise, Jack, Fred, Jim, Arthur, Alice and Gertie Walker, and the wife of Amos. In the early 1900s, the family lived in Accrington, but after the Second World War she settled in Barnsley. At an unspecified time, she was fined for not having a licence for her wireless set and was mortified that the case appeared in the local paper.

Jack took care of Joan in her final days. She died in 1962, aged 87. Jack's daughter Joan was named after her.

Joan was not seen in the programme. Jack's brief departure to care for her happened during the Equity actors' strike, during which only the regular cast could appear.
