Molly Lee Fox was born on December 30, 1937, in Bruce, Mississippi to the union of Jesse and Lotta Mae Fox, she was one of the seventeen. At the age of seventeen she moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to live with her sister where she found employment in a pharmacy store.
She worked there for a couple of years and in 1960 she gave birth to her first born, a daughter, Kathy Booker. Then in 1967 she moved to Chicago where she was employed at Jackson Hospital as a nurse.
