Mexican-born American noted family, she is the mother of Marilyn Monroe. Gladis evidently suffered from depression and perhaps other mental illness and was absent from her children's lives.

She was married three times; her first marriage to John Baker produced two children, Robert born when Gladis was 15 or 16 years old; Berneice came along when Gladis was 17. During Gladis' separation from her second husband Edward Mortenson (married in October 1924 and separated a few months later in May 1925), she became pregnant with Marilyn. The divorce became final in 1928. She married John Eley in 1949; that marriage lasted until his death three years later. She was in and out of institutions during her life, with her daughter Berneice caring for her as well as she could. Marilyn visited when she could escape scrutiny and provided financial support. Gladis died in a Florida nursing home on March 11, 1984.

Source Notes

A source who wishes to remain anonymous found a copy of the birth certificate online at The source added: "Written in Spanish, entry no. 121 records ‘Gladis Pearl Monroe.’ English translation provided reads: “Gladis Pearl Monroe legitimate daughter in the city of Porfirio Diaz the 1st of June 1902 at 10 in the morning, before the Civil Judge Francisco Lagromel, Otis E Monroe presented himself. He is married, 37 years old, originated from Indiana, Indianapolis, USA. Painter, neighbor of this city, presented a daughter and says it is his legitimate daughter by his wife Della Monroe, who is from Bentanville, Arkansas, USA. That the daughter was born in this city the 27th of May 1902 at 4:30 AM and they named her Gladis Pearl Monroe, her paternal grandparents are Jacob Monroe and Mary Monroe both deceased. Maternal grandparents are Filford M Hogan and Iene Hogan all Americans. The father heard read this certificate and agreed with all the contends witness Juan E Perez and Juan Navarro.”

Note: Porfirio Diaz is now Piedras Negras. Tilford should be given as the maternal grandfather’s first name instead of ‘Filford’ and Charlotte (or Jennie) instead of ‘Iene’ for the grandmother. This seems a minor of the translator. The 'origin' (i.e. birth place) of Gladys' parents may be incorrect as other sources report Missouri for both. This could be an error of the original author or misinformation common in early documents.
