(age 85)

American child actor. Her parents were married in 1915. Four months after their marriage, they had a daughter, MARGARET, who died in Montana aged 11 MONTHS of pneumonia. Both parents "shaved" a few years off their ages in 1930 and 1940. The Mom was actually about 40 years old in 1932. Patsy has a "legitimate" birth record but NO actual Birth Certificate is posted at Family Search as there are with most CA births. Her obituary show her as the sister of 4 men: ALFRED KUECHLER (born San Pedro 1940), LEONARD KUECHLER, EDDIE KUECHLER and FRANK MILANO. This adds to a suspicion that she was adopted and actually older than her Birth Record. The KUECHLER Dad was a seaman in the Navy. His wife, PAIRLEE (PEARLEE) EDWARD, was in her 2nd marriage after (MANLY).
Her Marriage Certificate agrees with a 1932 birth year. Her married name was Ekdom.
