She was the daughter of Harry Marshall and Elizabeth "Fanny" Gilmore who were immigrants from Canada. She was born and raised in Maine. Her parents moved to Beaverton, PA about 1930.

She is found in the 1910 Census with her parents in Houlton, ME and in the 1920 Census as a waitress living as a lodger, still in Houtlon. In the 1930 Census, she is in Somerville, NJ with her first husband and first three children. They seem to have moved in NJ in the middle of the 1920s.

She married John Norris 1891 - c. 1935 about 1922. He immigrated from Ireland in 1914 is is found in the 1920 Census as a coachman in Portland, ME. According to the 1930 Census, he was born in Maine but no trace of him before 1920 has been found there. According to his son's birth record, he was born in England.

She lived with Frederick R. Williamson from the early 1930s until his death. It is not clear when they married, but could not do so until after the death of his first wife in 1946. Reportedly, she was originally hired to look after his motherless children.

Mother of Clayton Norris, Dorothy Norris Hamilton, and Geraldine Norris DeBacco and of Gloria Banco, Clayton Williamson, Shirley Williamson Burgess, Lorraine Williamson Hoffman, and Lillian Williamson Salerno.

Son Clayton (originally Ralph) Norris (2 Dec 1922 - 16 Sept 1930) who died after being hit by a car and John Norris, her first husband who died in the 1930s, are buried nearby in unmarked graves.
