Personal Quote:

Trivia:

The play in which she was starring when she unexpectedly died was "Never Too Late" at the Mineola Playhouse on Long Island (she didn't show up for the performance one night, and it turned out that she had died in her hotel room). She was playing the role of the pregnant wife created on Broadway and on screen by Maureen O'Sullivan. See more »
