June 'Miss Crabtree' Marlowe ACTOR

June 'Miss Crabtree' Marlowe was born on November 6th, 1903 in St. Cloud, Minnesota with the birth name Gisela Valaria Goetten and was the oldest of five siblings, all of which pursued careers in entertainment. 
Although she had begun here career as a actress appearing in a number of silent films such as, "Where a Man's a Man" (1924), "Find Your Man" (1924), "Tracked in the Snow Country" (1925) and "Below the Line" (1925), she is most well known for her role as 'Miss Crabtree', the teacher, in the "Our Gang" shorts.  Although she was a natural brunette, she was actually asked by Hal Roach to wear a blonde wig so she could match Jackie Cooper's blonde hair. 
Some of the "Our Gang" films she added to her resume were in, "Teacher's Pet", "School's Out" and "Love Business".  Also added to her credits over the course of her career was a role in the films, "Free Lips" (1928), "The Loan Defender" (1930) and "Pardon Us" (1931). 
She never auditioned for this role, instead she was seen by the director, Robert F. McGowan in a department store and he was struck by her fresh face beauty that he asked her if she had any interest in working in the entertainment industry, unaware she had been a working actress for quite some time. 
June Marlowe married only once to Rodney Sprigg in 1933 and they were married until he passed away on August 2nd, 1982.  Just two years after losing her husband she passed away on March 10th, 1984 in Burbank, California after suffering from Parkinson's Disease.  Originally her remains were buried at the San Fernando Mission Cemetery but later were moved and interred in the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Los Angeles, California.
