Primorskiy Kray, Russian Federation
Death: Dec. 13, 1967
New York, USA

Vera (Borisovna) Bryner was the sister of Yul Brynner (who added a 2nd 'n' to the last name).

When she settled down in New York City, she tried to start a singing career. Appeared in several movies, singing Russia folk songs. She was well known for her high pitched soprano voice.

She openned up a Voice Studio, to help Broadway actors improve their singing capabilities.

She recorded one record album, singing Russian Romances, gypsy and folk songs in Russian.

Vera was married twice:
1- Roy Raymond (1948 - 13 December 1967) (till her death). Had 1 child, Irina.
2- Valentin Pavlovsky (? - ?) (divorced)

Vera died to breast cancer in New York City.
She had a Russian Orthodox Funeral.

Vera's and Yul Brynner's mother Maria (Marusia) Blagovidova, is also buried next to Vera's grave.
Irina (Veras only child) is also buried alongside with Vera.

NOTE (from member):
Vera had one child, Laura, not Irina. Irena, who is buried at the same location, was her cousin but they were more like sisters. Irena was a reknown goldsmith and sculptress who died in January 2003.
