Wilma Jane Marlowe (née Cox) is a character on the soap opera All My Children. She is best known for being the mother of Natalie and Janet Marlowe.


Wilma Marlowe is the mother of two daughters, Natalie and Janet. She always preferred her more attractive and successful daughter Natalie, while constantly verbally and emotionally abusing her younger daughter Janet. Her husband was not very prevalent in their daughters' lives (mentioned in a conversation between Natalie and Wilma), and this may have contributed to Natalie's fixation on older men. Wilma's constant belittling of Janet became the source of many psychological issues that led Janet to become delusional and paranoid.
