Was Marilyn an orphan?

No, Marilyn’s mother, Gladys, outlived her. But due to Gladys being in and out of homes whilst Norma Jeane grew up, she had to go into care which included foster homes and an orphanage. When she became famous, Marilyn said she was an orphan to be sure the press would leave her mother alone. Inez Melson would visit Gladys at the hospital and cared for her until she died.
