Jessie D Presley was a womanizer and had abandoned Minnie Mae and their 5 children.

After Elvis became famous, he tried to cash in with his own record and tv appearance.

This might be Jessie D visiting the Audobon Drive home, or just a neighbour.

Elvis did not spend much time with his grandfather, who attended an Elvis concert in 1971, and died in 1973.

Minnie Mae, on the other hand, lived with Elvis at Graceland, and outlived both her grandson and her son Vernon.
