The Woman in Congregation attended a service at Weatherfield Spiritualist Church in 1990. She was pleased when the medium spoke to her directly, telling her that the name Jim was coming to him, which she said had been her father's name. Communicating with the spirit of "Jim", the medium went on say that he was telling him that she mustn't worry about her upcoming visit to hospital as it wasn't serious, and that he wanted to see her smile again.

Attending the service after Vera Duckworth told her about the medium's contact with a mysterious "Brian", a curious but sceptical Ivy Brennan was amazed by the medium's apparent accuracy, and hoped that the "Brian" in question was spirit of her late son Brian Tilsley trying to get in touch with her.
