    (circa 1919-June 20, 2010)
    Born in Los Angeles, California
    Famed for a photo of her kissing a sailor in Times Square after the end of World War II
    The picture gave the impression that a soldier was reunited with his sweetheart but in reality she had no idea who the sailor was.
    She says that a sailor she never met before grabbed her and kissed her when the photographer took their picture.
    She didn't identify herself until the 1970’s.
    To this day she hasn’t been able to positively identify the sailor who kissed her.
    The spot where she kissed the sailor would eventually be underneath the location of Total Request Live.
    The white nurse uniform and the dark sailor suit made a perfect contrast for the photo.
    She frequently participates in Veteran's Day events.
    She was so overjoyed by the end of the war that she was willing to allow a perfect stranger to grab her and kiss her on the lips.
    At age 90 she recreated her famous pose with a dancer on broadway's 'South Pacific.'
