Personal Quote:

[on why she left films] I didn't regret leaving it; I regret not appreciating it more at the time. It all came so easy, I just didn't think of it then, like I do now. Hugh [husband Hugh Beaumont] didn't ask me to quit--I just quit to raise my children. It was a different world. Acting wasn't something I longed for--it just happened.


Husband Hugh Beaumont ("Ward Cleaver" of Leave It to Beaver (1957)) died suddenly while visiting their son, Hunter, a psychology professor in Munich, Germany. See more »
