Personal Quote:

[on Allan Lane, with whom she worked in Sheriff of Wichita (1949)] Allan Lane was so handsome, but he was so full of himself. He had nothing at all to do with me, like I was a total nobody. He was the so-called star and he knew it. He never got anything dirty or messed up. He always looked perfect. What a character!


Lyn has two children Carter and Lee Ann. She has four grandchildren, one great-granddaughter, three step-children, seven step-grandchildren and nine step-great-grand-children. See more »
