Mrs. Lansen was the mother of Lois Lansen. She was an older woman with light hair and a stout physique.

Mrs. Lansen went to visit her daughter Lois in the hotel where Lois resided. She encountered Dick Tracy in Lois' room after he had inadvertently knocked Lois unconscious while trying to get information from her about her narcotics supplier. Believing Tracy to be a robber, Mrs. Lansen alerted the passing Hotel Detective. He held Tracy at gunpoint until more police arrived.

Shortly after Tracy's identity was established, Lois attempted to kill herself by jumping off the roof of the hotel. Tracy talked her down, and Mrs. Lansen accompanied Lois to a hospital. There, she committed herself to helping Lois overcome her drug addiction.
