Gilbert was born and mostly raised in Chicago her mother took her and brother Eddie to Los Angeles when she was 14 (c. 1918) but reportedly looked a few years older, and got her into film after Monty Banks spotted her. In Hollywood she worked for Christy and Fox Studios making over 50 appearances from 1920.

Around 1926, when The Johnstown Flood was released she married entrepreneur Ashton Dearholt and bore him two children, Lee & Caryl Lee.
