Personal Quote:

It is not just the singing and the acting that I miss--it's the people. I loved all the people I worked with. CW Jr., regarding her retirement


Her husband, Palmer Beaudette, was an Army corporal at the time they married in 1941. He butted heads with Cobina's assertive mother about the direction of his wife's/her daughter's career. Cobina Jr. retired in 1943. See more »
