The Old Woman is the original owner of Donkey. She only appears in the first Shrek film when she wanted to give Donkey to Lord Farquaad's knights for being such a blabbermouth. When asked to prove he can talk, she fails to prove it, losing a chance to receive 10 shillings. Also she is responsible for kicking Tinkerbell's cage and making Donkey "fly". She is then arrested by Farquaad's guards, never to be seen again.
