Emily Deetz is the biological mother of Lydia Deetz in the musical. Not much is known about Emily Deetz but she is mentioned in Beetlejuice the Musical at the very beginning. As stated by the pastor in Invisible, Emily was a devoted wife, and a good mother to Lydia. She and Lydia seemed to be close, or at least had a good relationship, as Lydia is the one who finds it hardest to move on from her death, and is determined to make sure Emily doesn’t disappear entirely from their lives, along with having a fear of forgetting her mother.

In the original script Lydia's mother is alive and named Evelyn. She visits the Deetz family with Otho for dinner.
