Actress. Born in Chester, Illinois, she apparently stumbled into acting during a visit to California when she reportedly took a screen test as a lark. Offered a role, she debuted in the silent 'Flying U Ranch' in 1927. She appeared in more than a dozen more films before the end of the silent era, and made a successful transition to sound. She was featured in film serials of the 1930s including 'King of the Wild' and 'The Leather Pushers' and appeared opposite popular cowboy stars of the era including Hopalong Cassidy and Ken Maynard. Between 1930 and 1939 she appeared in more than forty films, mostly westerns, including 'Western Frontier' in 1935 and 'Hopalong Rides Again' in 1937, before her career began to drop off. She married Burdette Henney at about that time, and apparently devoted herself to him. She appeared in few more than a score more films before her retirement in 1944, many of the appearances were bit parts or even uncredited. In 1948, her husband died suddenly, and apparently devastated, she shot herself exactly one month later, explaining in a note that she could not continue without her husband.
