Death: Dec. 18, 1991
Vista
San Diego County
California, USA

Actress. Although born in Canada, Miss Storey was raised in Cincinnati and later in California. Owing, in part, to a friendship between an uncle and production executive Winfield Sheenan, the spirited blonde signed with Fox Studios in 1934. She appeared in several small supporting roles, including in three Tyrone Power films: "Girls' Dormitory" (1936), "Thin Ice" (1937) and notably, "In Old Chicago" (1937). After parting with Fox, she signed with Republic in 1939 and there gained her greatest recognition as a leading lady in Westerns. It is her ten co-starring roles opposite Gene Autry for which she is best remembered. She prettily lit up the screen in such movies as "Colorado Sunset" (1939), "Blue Montana Skies" (1939) and "Rancho Grande"(1940). After a total of 15 films at Republic, her contract ended in October of 1940. She then freelanced until 1949, working at Columbia, MGM, United Artists, 20th Century Fox and once again, Republic. Retiring to marry an Oregon rancher whom she later divorced, Miss Storey survived a near-fatal auto accident in 1950. Upon recovery, she studied nursing and was actively involved with various charities. Her second marriage to Lincoln Clark produced two children; they eventually settled in Vista, California. A favorite of Western film related autograph shows, Miss Storey's many public appearances kept her in the well deserved spotlight until her death from cancer in 1991. (bio by: Melissa)
