Black American child actress. Apparently an only child, she got married at 16 to a Joe Pearson, who worked in a furniture factory. They were living with her parents, and her father did construction work. Neither she nor her mother were listed as having jobs. She picked up another last name along the way, and died rather young.
She is buried in Woodlawn Memorial Park, Compton, Los Angeles, California - Section 3-2, Lot 105, Grave 6.
