    Born in La Porte City, Iowa
    Hosted TV show program, 'Kukla, Fran and Ollie'
    Also (with Kukla and Ollie) hosted the CBS Children's Film Festival
    Graduated from Coe College
    She is known entirely for talking to hand puppets -- and was second-billed to one of them.
    She had no career outside of 'Kukla, Fran and Ollie.'
    She overshadowed Burr Tillstrom, who did the puppets, their voices and most of the writing.
    With 'Kukla, Fran and Ollie' and 'The CBS Children's Film Festival,' she starred in two of the best and most popular TV children's shows of all time.
    She starred in two TV programs that lasted ten or more years.
    She was married to her husband for 37 years until his death.
    She died of leukemia.
    There was never even a hint of scandal attached to her name.
    During the fifties, there were jokes that the unusually high ratings of 'Kukla, Fran and Ollie' among adults were caused by men wanting to see her.
    She had an outstanding reputation for professionalism and it is literally impossible to find anyone saying a bad word about her.
