    Though singing was her passion, she only sang in one movie she was in (her first role in 'Cadet Girl').
    Her first marriage ended in divorce after nine years (1942-51).
    When she married a lumber and shipping tycoon in 1956, she promptly quit show biz for good.
    In 1935, she graduated with two degrees (Arts and Music) from Western Reserve College in Cleveland.
    While looking for her big acting break she supported herself working as a waitress, sales clerk at Bloomingdale's, and even singing in church choirs for a small fee.
    She sang in four different Broadway musical numbers and was discovered in one of them by movie mogul Darryl F. Zanuck, who signed her to a movie deal.
    In the later years of her life, she involved herself in philanthropy and cultural activities of her residences in Sarasota, FL and Durham, NC.
