#Fact
1 She was the live action model for the cartoon character Wilma Flintstone.
2 A Republican, she publically endorsed Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan for president.
3 Her father was Francis Meadows Cotter, an Episcopal missionary. Her mother's name was Ida Miller Taylor.
4 She was the first The Simpsons (1989) guest star to have passed away. Ironically she played an old woman at an old folk's home who died and came back as a ghost.
5 Although not a comedienne by nature, Audrey appeared with many of Hollywood's top comic royalty during her "Golden Age of TV" years including Red Skelton, George Gobel, Jack Benny, Sid Caesar, and Carol Burnett.
6 Biography in: "American National Biography". Supplement 1, pp. 401-403. New York: Oxford University Press, 2002.
7 Jackie Gleason was short and had a Napoleon complex, so he hired short actors to work with. One of the few exceptions was Audrey, who was 5'6" but wore flats.
8 She returned once to The Honeymooners (1955) in 1966 for the last black-and-white sketch entitled "The Adoption" which was broadcast in Miami.
9 She lived in China for the first five years of her life because her parents were missionaries there. Until her family moved back the US, Audrey spoke nothing but Chinese. Her family was visiting New York City when she was born.
10 One of many of her character's famous quips to Jackie Gleason's "Ralph Kramden" was when Ralph said that he was waiting for his "pot of gold": "Go for the gold, Ralph, you've already got the pot!".
11 When she first auditioned for the part of Alice Kramden, Jackie Gleason turned her down because, he said, she was too pretty to be believable as Ralph's wife. Determined to get the part, she hired a photographer to take pictures of her with frumpy clothes, no makeup and a generally world-weary attitude and sent them to Gleason. Gleason, not recognizing the woman in the photo as Audrey, told his producers that she was "Alice" and to find her. When he found out it was indeed Audrey, he said that any actress that determined to get the part deserved it, and hired her.
12 Became the first woman director of the First National Bank of Denver in post-acting years.
13 Audrey and Joyce Randolph (who played neighbor Trixie in the Honeymooner's sketches) knew each other before the classic TV show. They once worked together in a summer stock production of "No, No, Nanette.".
14 Her last word was reportedly "Jayne!" Her sister Jayne Meadows rushed to her bedside when she heard of her impending death, and after Audrey said this last word, Jayne took her little sister's hand and Audrey squeezed it. She slipped into a coma and never said another word, passing away on February 3, 1996, in Room 8102 of Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
15 Both Audrey and Jayne Meadows competed against members of the William F. Buckley family in local talent shows. In 1944, three of Buckley's sisters were accused of vandalizing the church where Audrey and Jayne's father was rector.
16 The youngest of four children.
17 Brother-in-law is the late Steve Allen.
18 Late husband, Bob Six, was CEO of Continental Airlines and was once married to Ethel Merman.
19 Played field hockey in school
20 She and sister Jayne Meadows had nicknames for each other when they were little. Audrey was Sara and Jayne was Elinor.
21 Debuted at Carnegie Hall as a mezzo soprano.
22 Was a chain smoker.
23 Father, Rev. Francis James Meadows Cotter was an Episcopal priest and mother, Ida, was a missonary.
24 In one sense, Audrey and her agent, were smarter than the usually visionary Jackie Gleason. Audrey was the only one of the Honeymooners cast whose contract required payments to her for TV re-runs and sales of the episodes.
25 Younger sister of actress Jayne Meadows.
26 Best remembered for her continuing role as Alice Kramden, wife of Ralph Kramden (played by Jackie Gleason), in TV's The Honeymooners (1955). (The same role had been played earlier by Pert Kelton, and later by Sheila MacRae.).

#Quote
1 My father was an Episcopal minister, and for 14 years my family lived in China, in a city called Wuchang. We four children spoke Chinese before we spoke English. We left when the communists came, in the early 1930s. I was about 5 years old.
2 [on Jackie Gleason] He was divine to work with, an absolute genius. I've never been in a show that had the chemistry of everybody together like that. We were all very close.
3 I've always voted Republican because America is exactly that, a republic. You can't expect much leadership with a Democrat behind the desk their not even close to dual efficient.
4 [on Jackie Gleason and The Honeymooners (1955)] He did not like to rehearse. I kept saying to Art [Art Carney] 'When do we do the blocking?' And he said, 'You just did it'. I said, 'Well, are they going to do a camera run?' He said, 'You just did it'. I said, 'Well, what time is dress rehearsal?' And he said, 'You just did it'. I was in a state of panic. So I got through that first show and then I got to love the fact of not rehearsing, because it's much better for comedy when it's not over-rehearsed.
5 You as you are are better by far than the you that you are trying to be.
