    (August 28, 1926-August 3, 2013)
    Born in Long Beach, California
    Birth name was Mary Lee Evans
    Known as 'the Marilyn Monroe of Burlesque'
    Measurements: 40-26-34
    Curator of Exotic World: The Burlesque Hall of Fame
    Her act was described as 'either a parody or a tribute to Marilyn, depending on how you look at it.'
    She was the first woman Joe DiMaggio dated after his divorce from Monroe.
    She hyped the first Miss Exotic World Pageant at her museum (1990) by sending out a press release that 'Lily St. Cyr, Tempest Storm, Blaze Starr and 30 other alumni of burlesque will all be invited to attend this reunion,' while glossing over the minor fact that none of the invitees had expressed any interest in attending.
    She continued stripping off her top well after it stopped being erotic.
    She said of Monroe, 'I adored her with all my heart.'
    She helped care for fellow stripper Jennie Lee after Lee developed breast cancer and brought Lee's dream of a burlesque museum to fruition.
    Visitors to Exotic World said she was always a charming and witty hostess.
    She noted that when Bono visited, 'He almost bought out the entire gift shop.'
