Old Woman is Donkey's former owner that appeared in Shrek. She tries to give Donkey away because of his annoyance. She wanted to give Donkey to Lord Farquaad for being such a blabbermouth. She cannot prove that he can talk, meaning she does not receive any money. Also she is responsible for kicking Tinker Bell's cage and making Donkey "fly". She is then arrested by Farquaad's guards, never to be seen again.
