    (September 1, 1898-December 26, 1983)
    Born in Manchester, England, United Kingdom
    Musician/actress on the BBC radio programs 'Children's Hour,' 'Nursery Sing Song' and 'Have a Go'
    Portrayed Ena Sharples on the British soap opera 'Coronation Street' (1960-80)
    She tried to shave seven years off her age, claiming a 1905 year of birth.
    She was once listed in the BBC programming guide 'Radio Times' as 'Violent Carson.'
    She complained about being typecast, saying 'Violet Carson was destroyed the day Ena Sharples first appeared in Coronation Street.'
    She married her childhood sweetheart, George Peploe, who died two years later at age 31 (1928); she never remarried.
    When she was named an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (1965), Queen Elizabeth told her that she was 'an ardent fan.'
    She said, 'People tell me I have managed to make a lot of folk happy. I hope I have.'
