Moina Beresford Esme Melville
Moina Beresford 1994
Marital Status: Seamus Beresford
The mother of Ramsay Street resident Pam Willis, Moina Beresford was widowed when husband Seamus died of a heart attack. She remained active, however, and arrived in Erinsborough for the naming day of her first great-grandson, Zac, born to Pamís daughter, Gaby. The event was largely a success, despite constant jibes between Moina and her son-in-law, Doug Willis, about him eating fatty foods, since that was what had led to her husband dying. The event then turned out to be a doubly happy occasion, as Moina learnt that she was about to become a great-grandmother for a second time, as Beth, the wife of Pamís son, Brad, announced that she was expecting.
Notes: Esme Melville previously played Mrs York in 1986 and Jean Halliday in 1993 and returned in 2002 in the recurring role of Rose Belker.
