Storylines[]

Nora is the mother of Carl White and Adam White. She appears on 23 July 2013, when Carl and his ex-girlfriend Kirsty Branning decide to visit her in her nursing home for her birthday. Nora does not know they have split up, and she says she is pleased they are still together. While Carl gets some tea, Nora tells Kirsty she hopes for a grandchild from them, but while Kirsty gets a vase for her flowers, Nora takes Carl's hand and digs her nails in, threatening to kill him if he hurts Kirsty, comparing him to his "pathetic" father. Carl and Kirsty leave, and Kirsty can tell Carl is troubled, but does not see the cuts on his hand.

Nora returns to Walford in March 2014. Carl has not been in contact with her for over three months. A meeting with Roxy Mitchell, Carl's girlfriend, is arranged but Roxy's sister Ronnie Mitchell tricks her into believing that she is Roxy. Carl's brother, Adam White joins her in Walford, and shows her a picture of Roxy, making Nora realise that she had been lied to. Adam kidnaps Lexi Pearce, which Nora is unhappy about. They arrange to meet Ronnie, who brings Lexi's grandfather Phil Mitchell as back up. Nora demands to know what happened to Carl in return for Lexi but Phil manages to convince Adam to give Lexi back to them. Nora begs the Mitchells for answers causing Ronnie to break down and admit that she killed him, leaving a distraught Nora and Adam shocked. Ronnie later has Adam beaten up by Aleks Shirovs and she and Phil visit Adam in hospital whilst Nora sits by his bedside. Ronnie warns the Whites to leave them alone, threatening them with more violence if they do not. She and Phil then leave. Nora has not been seen since.
