There are a number of shipping manifest entries for her.

She left England from Liverpool on the 'Parthia' on 11 April 1959 heading for New York. Her intention was to remain in the US. She was single, b. 21 May 1931 and gave her UK address as 8 Chepstow Mansions, Bayswater, London. Her occupation is given as Air Hostess. She potentially shows on a crew list for PanAm Airlines in the mid 1950s. One crew list in 1958 shows her as Ann G Stephens, with British nationality.

There are pictures of her in that article.  You haven't missed all that much in the full article.  It just tells you about her career starting at nine years old as Alice in a gramophone recording of Alice in Wonderland.  Mentions some of the other things she appeared in.

Interesting to note that her father is stated as being a Lt. Cdr. Presumably he joined one of the Forces during the second world war but after 1939.

So I wonder if she stayed in the US then and either married there or died there as a single person.

That is what I was thinking too. So many people seem to have been looking for her death details  :-\ Would she show on the US SSDI I wonder (never remember the guidelines for it!).

Nothing for Stephens or 1966. Two deaths showing for an Ann G and her birth date:

Ann G. McWhorter b. 25 May 1931 - d. 24 Aug 2011 - Decatur, Newton, Mississippi
Ann G. Haney b. 25 May 1931 - d. 13 Jun 2002 - Charleston, Kanawha, West Virginia, USA

Who knows!

Monica

Added: 3 entries without the middle name of G and with correct birth date. None in 1966.

Yes, must be. That is certainly her birth entry.

Her father, Lucian's Probate Calander entry has his address in 1958 when he died as 8 Chepstow Mansions, Paddington, London, widow Kathleen. So we do have right details for her confirmed I think.

So, what happened in her life after 1959 we have to wonder?
