In 1926, her father passed away and her mother took her and her brother John to live in Boston.  Her mother later re-married and the family relocated to California.  She soon broke into the film industry, mostly working as an extra and later signed a contract with MGM.

She married three times throughout her lifetime, first to Walter Kane in 1939 and by 1943 this marriage came to an end.  She then married Sidney Luft in 1943 and they had two children before this marriage ended in divorce in 1950.  Her third and final husband was Dr. Nathan Rickles in 1955 however again by 1972, a third marriage was unsuccessful.
