From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Harriet Hilliard Nelson, born Peggy Lou Snyder, was an American singer and actress.

Born in Des Moines, Iowa on July 18, 1909 to Roy Hilliard Snyder and Hazel Dell McNutt; by 1932 she was performing in vaudeville when she met the saxophone-playing Ozzie Nelson and was hired by him as vocalist for his orchestra.

They married three years later and with him and their children, Ricky Nelson and David Nelson, she starred in the highly popular radio and television series The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet between 1944 and 1966 and it is that for which she is best known, despite the movies and singing career.

She died of congestive heart failure on October 2, 1994, at the age of 85. She is interred with her husband and younger son Ricky (who died in a plane crash) in the Forest Lawn - Hollywood Hills Cemetery in Los Angeles, California.
