A description of a woman

My question is from " Mrs.Bixby and the Colonel's Coat" by Dahl.
How did he try to characterize Mrs.Bixby by writing,"Mrs. Bixby was a big vigorous woman with a wet mouth."? Strong,active and healthy woman having a moist mouth with saliva? It seems a bit strange to me...could you describe your Mrs.Bixby?
