Marion "Lady Marion" Worth
Birth: Jul. 4, 1935
Jefferson County
Alabama, USA
Death: Dec. 19, 1999
Davidson County

Singer. Born Mary Ann Ward, she began her professional career singing on the radio in Dallas, Texas. She later became one of the first female singers to break the country music tradition of "male only" lead vocalists and was one of the first country artists to perform at Carnegie Hall. She was also a member of the Grand Ole Opry and performed there regularly from 1963 until retiring in 1980. She enjoyed her biggest success in 1960 when two of her songs reached the top ten on the country charts, "That's My Kind Of Love" peaked at #5 while "I Think I Know" reached #7. Her other country hits included, "Are You Willing, Willie", "Crazy Arms", and "Shake Me I Rattle (Squeeze Me I Cry)" which also crossed over to the pop charts, reaching number 42 in 1963. Cause of Death: Emphysema.  (bio by: Decal)
