JAYNE MEADOWS, ACTRESS, DIES AT 95


The Museum salutes the life and career of Jayne Meadows.

 
Jayne Meadows, the Emmy-nominated actress and TV personality who often teamed with her husband, Steve Allen, has died. She died on April 26th and was 95.

Meadows died of natural causes Sunday at her home in the Encino, California, area, spokesman Kevin Sasaki said Monday. Her son, Bill Allen, and other family members were with her.

"She was not only an extraordinarily gifted actress who could move audiences from laughter to tears and back again all in one scene, but she was the greatest storyteller I have ever known...." said her son, who heads the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corp.

Though best known as the wife of the beloved TV host — and the sister of "Honeymooners" star Audrey Meadows — Jayne Meadows had a solid career in her own right. She appeared on Broadway and in movies, gained three prime-time Emmy nominations as a TV actress and was a staple of talk shows and game shows.

Steve Allen, who died in 2000, summed up her appeal in a 1977 Los Angeles Times interview.

"She's an old-fashioned woman, old-fashioned in terms of her attitudes, her manner, her demeanor, her voice," he said. "She has a dignity that is rare these days. But she also has a lightness, an airiness, a girlishness and a certain degree of social innocence."
