Her mother was a pianist and her father was a silent film actor and singer in light operas and musical comedies in Australia, New York, and London. She immigrated to the USA and received drama degrees from Pasadena College and The Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London, England. She starred in the play "The Women" in New York and went on to have a career in Hollywood with Paramount Studios where she starred in about 20 movies with stars such as John Wayne and William Boyd. She married in Vancouver, Canada where she had a part time radio show. In Seattle she was a proud homemaker who believed in education and the arts. While her first love was family, she continued doing part time work in television, advertising, and theater. She was active in PTA, the Seattle Symphony, Ruth School for Girls, the Seattle Milk Fund, and the Seattle Yacht Club. She was preceded in death by her husband of 25 years, Arden Steinhart.

Thank you to Sound View Home and the NICA Family Home for their loving care. A Memorial service is being planned for a later date.
