Neighborhood Bluewater Village

Lauren Tinker is one of the pre-made deceased ancestral Sims who resided during her lifetime in Bluewater Village, the shopping district shipped with The Sims 2: Open for Business. She was the wife of Ron Tinker, the mother of Stephen Tinker, and the grandmother of Melody Tinker. Lauren has personality points and interests, something not every ancestral Sim has. She is completely resurrectable, even though she doesn't have a grave.

Lauren has the Popularity aspiration, and the Libra zodiac sign. As far as personality, she is very outgoing, quite playful, and rather nice. But Lauren is quite sloppy and rather lazy. This may explain why her son Stephen is very playful. Lauren didn't know her daughter in-law Wanda Tinker's parents like her husband did. According to her SimDNA in SimPE, her hair was brown before it turned grey. According to Lauren's age data in SimPE, she had 15 days left in the elder life stage when she died.

Her facial structure is almost, if not exactly identical to the 5th Maxis face template in Create a Sim. Lauren's wants include making a friend, meeting someone new, defeating the Grim Reaper, and gaining a charisma skill point. Her fears include receiving a visit from the Social Bunny, losing to the Grim Reaper, and being irritated by a neighbor.
