Married to her husband, Filbrick Pines, and the mother of Stan and Ford and Shermy, Ma Pines lived in Glass Shard Beach, New Jersey, where she worked as a phone psychic that was greatly assisted by her need to pathologically lie. Despite caring for all her sons, she stood by her husband's decision to evict Stan from their home, as she too believed he had cost his brother Ford his dream college.
Stan's mother makes several appearances in his flashbacks throughout "A Tale of Two Stans," seen operating as a phone psychic and meeting with the Pines twins' principal about her sons' futures.
She wears a red, sleeveless dress, white heels, golden bangles, and large golden hoop earrings. She has long nails and wore dark red lipstick and purple eye shadow. She wears a large part of her hair up in a partial beehive, leaving the rest of it loose.
