Jacqueline Ingrid "Jackie" Bouvier (née Gurney), occasionally referred to as Grandma Bouvier or Mrs. Bouvier, is the mother of Marge Simpson, Patty and Selma Bouvier, the widow of the late Clancy Bouvier, the mother-in-law of Homer Simpson and the grandmother of Bart, Lisa and Maggie Simpson. She also had a sister named Gladys, now deceased.

Common Bouvier traits[edit]

Jacqueline shares many Bouvier family traits with her daughters. When Marge was a little girl, Jacqueline had a blue beehive hairdo like Marge's, and her voice was also very similar to Marge's as an adult. She smoked for a period of time when Homer and Marge got married but now quit. However, Jacqueline still has in common with Patty and Selma a pessimistic and critical outlook on life, rarely smiling. While she may also have a generally negative opinion of Homer like Patty and Selma, this seemed to soften over the years; she even states "Patty and Selma are a sort of evil" when they purposely provoked Homer one night.

Romantic relationships[edit]

Jacqueline was married to Clancy Bouvier, now deceased[4][5] At one point, she had a brief romance with Abraham Simpson, her son-in-law Homer's father. However, she broke up with him when she was wooed by billionaire Charles Montgomery Burns, whom she nearly married before Abraham's intervention made her decide she was better off alone.

Behind the Laughter[edit]

Simpsons creator Matt Groening named Jacqueline after Jacqueline Lee Bouvier Kennedy Onassis. She has the tallest hair of any Simpsons character. According to a DVD commentary, her appearance was created by "taking Marge's model and squashing it."
