Actress. She is best remembered for her role of ‘Buffy' on the television series "Family Affair". Born in West Lafayette, Indiana, her parents moved to San Diego County, California, when she was a small girl, settling in Playa del Rey, where she grew up. In 1966 she was cast as ‘Elizabeth "Buffy" Patterson-Davis' in "Family Affair", playing the role until 1971. She had a brief cameo role in 1968 on television's Rowan and Martin "Laugh-In", which gave her an appetite for more acting roles, and in 1969, she won the role of ‘Buffy Davis' in the motion picture "Roman Affair" (1969) and the role of ‘Carol Bix' in "The Trouble with Girls" (1969). She tried out for the role of 'Regan' in "The Exorcist" (1973), but lost out to Linda Blair. Continuing with her schooling at Westchester High School from 1973 to 1976, she briefly worked at Winchell's Donut Shop in Playa del Rey, where she grew up. She died at the age of 18 of a drug overdose in 1976. (bio by: Kit and Morgan Benson)
