Looking for a death date and place for Laura Ida (Booth) Norman died between 1920-1925 possibly in New York City.  She was living in the National Vaudeville Artist Club, 229 W. 46th St. in 1924, at least she received a letter in March of 1924 there.  Not looking for anything but a death date.  Thank you.

I am the great niece of Laura and Art Driver. I have all the same info you have plus a litle more.

 Laura Ida Booth who joined the circus, supposedly Robinson's Circus between 1891-1894 in Tennessee, was listed as a new act for Welsh Bros. Circus (1894-95 Fulton, New York site Feb. 1) and left Welsh Bros., according to 1897-1899, July 2, Fulton, New York site. She and her husband Charles Levine (Le Vine) worked with the Harry and Amy La Van during part of those year at Welsh Bros., leaving at the same time.

She was also known as Alma Booth, Mlle Alma and Mrs. L. I. Norman and later performed in Vaudeville.

Besides being married to Charles Levine aka Charles Asburn, and having a son, Charles Wilson Asburn, who was also a performer, she married at least twice more; Lewis A. Howard 1914 in Illinois and Isaac Driver (aka possibly Art Norman), 1917, in New York. She died, according to her son, in 1924.

Lewis A. Howard was considered the fastest lightning crayon artist.

Question answered. Laura Ida (Booth) Norman never died.

She married changed her last name and that person may have a death record. See previous answer.

Dear Carol, Would still like to assist in finding information for you. Have not seen any responses to your question and did not know if you had any luck finding death date for Laura.  Do you have a wikitree page for Laura? It would help those that would like to assist to see all available data. Contact me or repost your search. Have a nice day.

No, still haven't found a death date.  Since she was a Vaudeville performer, it is had to tell where she may have died.  New York is the last place we have a place for Laura.  Thanks for the offer.  Not sure how to do a page for her.
they also called her Jeanette, I have a news paper clipping of it

Laura Ida (Booth) Asburn-Howard-Norman/Driver died as Ruth Norman  29 Apr 1925 in Manhatten, New York, New York, USA. Her address was 227 West 64 th St., NY City. She was buried 1 May 1925 at Kensico Cemetery. I don't know why I can't paste the records, one from ancestry.com and a better one from New York, New York City Municipal Deaths. They do have her father as John Wilkes Booth and her mother as Ida Payne, but should be Louisa J. (Price) Payne-Booth. Her son, Charles Wilson Asburn also petitioned for her estate in Philadelphia 4 Jun 1925.
