    (May 5, 1929-July 1, 2010)
    Born in Portsmouth, New Hampshire
    Birth name was Jacqueline Ruth Woods
    Hosted her own show on the ABC radio network
    Provided the voice of the title character in Disney's 'Cinderella' (1950)
    Sang on the TV shows of Perry Como, Arthur Godfrey and Garry Moore
    Named a Disney Legend (2003)
    Her mom, who worked in the biz, got her on stage at age two.
    She had only one on-screen movie role, as a talent contest winner in 'On Stage Everybody.' (1945)
    When 'Cinderella' was released on DVD, she was asked if she was a fan of DVDs and replied, 'I don't even know how to run the machine, but thank goodness my husband does.'
    Between them, her Wikipedia article, IMDB profile and Disney Legends page provide three different versions of which of her two husbands fathered which of her kids; they also have trouble deciding if she has two sons, a son and a daughter, or two sons and a daughter.
    During World War II, she toured with the USO and sold war bonds, and was invited to perform for FDR at his Hyde Park home (1944) and Harry S. Truman at the White House (1945).
    She recorded a demo record of 'Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo' and 'A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes' as a favor for writers Mack David and Jerry Livingston without realizing that they would be playing the record for Walt Disney. After she was chosen for Cinderella she said, 'I learned a good lesson. Never pass up doing a good deed for friends!'
    After retiring from show biz, she began a career as a portrait painter.
    She called her 43-year marriage to Tonight Show drummer Ed Shaughnessy 'the happiest years of my life.'
