Businesswoman. Raised on a farm in South Africa, she studied ballet in London but used her dance talents otherwise. At age 24 she met Bob Guccione, then manager of the fledgling Penthouse magazine. In 1969 the magazine was introduced in the United States. While she served as vice-chair and Chief Executive of General Media Communications, she also founded magazines Omni and Longevity and authored two books. She is buried in a small plot at the Guccione estate,"the Willows" in Staatsburg, New York with a grand view of the Hudson River and the Catskill Mountains beyond. The grave is marked by a metal oriental figurine inscribed with the date Sept. 17, 1997. Two small stones are engraved with the words "Peace" and "Forever."
