Personal Quote:

All during the war, we kept saying, Ben [husband Ben Lyon] and I, that when it was over, we would come back to Hollywood. But now we've been here, and we just have to be honest, this is no longer home. Home is back in London, because we went through the bombings with them. See more »


She had two children, a daughter Barbara and an adopted son, Richard Lyon. She became a singer for British Columbia records and he became London's top disc jockey and later with his mother operated an interior decorating and antique studio. See more »
