My daughter is watching Andy right now and asked about what happened to Opie's mom. I told her I did not know. Does anyone know?

Seems to me I remember some illusion to the fact that she died, but I don't know how old Opie was when that was suppose to have happened.

Here is the best answer to this question.

Thanks. Its really neat to have somewhere to turn for TAGS trivia

I think it's kind of odd that both Andy's wife and mother died. Aunt Bee raised Andy, too. Maybe the writers did that as a sort of "Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval" or credential for Aunt Bee.

In the pilot episode of TAGS on "Make Room for Daddy" (Danny Thomas Show), Opie's turtle gets stepped on and dies. That's when Andy told him that his Ma died when he was a baby. Opie replies, "Who stepped on her?"

Thats the first time we hear of Opie's mom dying. I'm sure it's mentioned on the show again but I can't remember which episode.

I always thought they said she "got sick and died".  I believe that, one time, Opie said he "(didn't) have no Maw".

Actually, Thelscuz, Opie told Ellie "Ain't got no maw" in "Ellie Comes to Town", Season 1, Episode 4.  Never heard or saw where his maw got sick and died though, if you can pinpoint that one, I'd sure like to know where to see it/download it.  Let me know, ok?  Thanks!

I've watched Andy since day one, and never saw the Danny Thomas Show episode where Andy tells Opie about losing his maw.  Thanks for pointing that out, it tugs on one's heartstrings.

Yes,  Andy tells Opie his Ma died, we don't know if it was illness or just being stepped on my Mrs. Boliver.

We do know Mrs. Boliver got a fair trial before a hanging.
