I wish my sister [Gypsy Rose Lee
] hadn't died at an early age. That she could have had the exquisite joy of growing old. It's just not fair to be cheated out of that.
Mother Rose died of colon cancer in 1954. With their mother gone, June and sister Gypsy Rose Lee
decided they could write about their lives without risking a lawsuit. Lee's memoirs, entitled "Gypsy", were published in 1957, and later evolved into the smash Broadway musical starring Ethel Merman
as Mama Rose.
