She was the neighbor next door when she met and later married Thomas Washington Williams, Jr. The couple married on July 7, 1938 in Elkton, MD because her husband, Tom wanted to get married on his birthday so he couldn't forget his anniversary. She wore a pink dress, pink slip, pink panties,and white sandals. Five years later she gave birth to a daughter, who was named after her mom. Her father wanted her to be named after her mom, but he nicknamed her Mitzie. No one knows how he came up with that one.

She loved to go to Atlantic City and walk the board walk and sit on the beach and get a tan. She never complained about getting sick but died suddenly of a massive heart attack at home on July 15, 1977. She was well liked and loved and there were so many people at Wooster's Funeral Home in Atco, NJ that everyone thought there were 2 funerals going on at the same time.
