Voice Actress. She began acting in 1938 with small roles in western features at RKO and Paramount Studios. In the early 1940s, her distinctive voice got her a radio contract and she appeared regularly on such series as 'One Man’s Family', 'The Gallant Heart', 'The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet', 'The Eddie Bracken Show' and in the title role on 'Meet Corliss Archer'. She acted in several TV series, including 'I Love Lucy', 'The Andy Griffith Show', 'Get Smart' and 'Petticoat Junction'.
