Mother of actors, Jack, Mary and Lottie Pickford. They are all interred at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California. She was 55 years old at the time of her death. She was born in either 1873 or 1872. She was born January 1, 1873 in Toronto, Ontario Canada to Catholic parents from County Kerry, Ireland. She married John Charles Smith, a Toronto born Methodist with English ancestry. After her husband's early demise, she took in boarders to help with earning an income. Through early boarders who were actors, the Smith family entered the entertainment business, much to the dismay of their Methodist in-laws. She decided to change her surname and that of her children to her mother's maiden name, Pickford.
