Mamie Elizabeth Gooch was born May 21, 1904, to Laura Ellen Hughes and Daniel Lewellyn Gooch, both members of pioneer Oklahoma families. Mrs. Humphrey attended a one room school in Logan County, where she later taught, until she went to Guthrie High School as a boarding student. She subsequently attended Central State University and O.S.U. On March 17, 1924, she married William Edgar Humphrey, who died on January 19, 1960.

She was a founding member and President of the Pauls Valley Historical Society. She also chaired the Pauls Valley Citizens Committee on Education and was a member of the United Daughters of the Confederacy. Her great loves were her family, her friends, her church, and history.
