Death comes for us all, but those we leave behind feel its sting more than those who pass on. Very recently, Veteran television actress Jean Allison, best known for roles in shows like “Bonanza,” “Gunsmoke,” and “Perry Mason,” died at 94, shocking her fans and the world at large. 

According to an obituary from her family, she died on February 28 in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. However, they did not reveal the cause of death.

Allison was a character actress who used her skills well, building a long resume in popular TV. Some of her most notable appearances include episodes of Charlie’s Angels,” The Detectives,” Emergency!”, Hawaiian Eye,” Starsky & Hutch,” and The Waltons.

Allison was born on October 24, 1929, and grew up in Tarrytown, New York. She eventually attended Adelphi College on Long Island and studied acting under Sanford Meisner.

She caught the eye of a scout after appearing in a stage performance of the drama “Teach Me How to Cry.” This led to her debut in the CBS anthology “General Electric Theater” episode in 1957.

Allison was a great TV actress, but she also enjoyed success on the big screen. She also appeared in such films as “Edge of Fury” (1958), “The Devil’s Partner” (1960), “The Steagle” (1971), “Bad Company” (1972), and “Hardcore” (1979).

While she enjoyed great success on TV and even on the big screen, Allison did not have much luck in love. She tried her hand at marriage three different times with different men.
