Little Norma Jeane (right) and her mother, Gladys, with Olive Brunings-Monroe and her daughter, Ida Mae (1928). At the time, Norma was living with Ida and Albert “Wayne” Bolender for the first seven years. Gladys made infrequent visits which was confusing to little Norma; she recalled being told “the woman with the red hair who comes, that’s your mother.” In 1937, almost ten years after this photograph was taken, Norma moved in with Olive and Ida Mae until August 1938. Olive married Marion Monroe, Norma’s uncle, in September 1924 and together had three children: Jack (b. 1925), Ida Mae (b. 1927), and Olive Elizabeth (b. 1929). At the time, Olive was living with her mother, Ida Martin, who helped care for the children. Marion Monroe was never seen again after leaving for work one morning in 1929; he was later declared “legally dead.” Years later, Ida Mae said, “I remember she said over and over again that she was never going to marry. She said she was going to be a school teacher and have lots of dogs.”
