Hazel Plummer was born in Somerville, Massachusetts, USA, on 19 June 1908. She had one brother and one sister. She grew up a street apart from her future husband, Elmer – although they didn’t know it at the time. The two married in either 1934 or 1935 (sources vary) and had two children, Roger and David.
After the eighth grade, Plummer went to trade school to become a seamstress. She went to work for an upscale designer on Newbury Street in Boston, Massachusetts. After marrying, she raised her children while her husband worked at a steel company and then in the children’s department of a department store. The family later moved to Littleton, Massachusetts, where she has lived since.
Plummer's mother lived with her until she died at age 94. Her father died at 74. Plummer had six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren at the time she turned 110. She became the oldest known living person in the state of Massachusetts following the death of Gina Galvani on 27 January 2019.
