2. Aunt Bea was an interesting woman for her time...
Frances Bavier, 1902-1989...
...originally planned to become a teacher after attending Columbia University. She first appeared in vaudeville, later moving to the Broadway stage. After graduating from American Academy of Dramatic Arts in 1925, ..(her) big break came in the original Broadway production of On Borrowed Time. She later appeared with Henry Fonda in the play Point of No Return.
(she) never married or had children. Somewhat awkward in one-on-one relationships, she was giving to charitable organizations and fans .. .(and) enthusiastically promoted Christmas and Easter Seal Societies.
(she) had been a fan of Studebaker cars since the thirties. In Mayberry R.F.D., she drove her own 1966 Daytona two-door Sports Sedan ... she kept this car in perfect state while alive and refused to purchase a new car when her driver suggested it ... She was also a member of the Studebakers Drivers Club.
