A singer, dancer and actress, she was married to "Oklahoma" star Gordon MacRae for 26 years and they appeared together in 1964 on "The Ed Sullivan Show" when the Beatles were featured.

In an earlier version, Audrey Meadows starred with Jackie Gleason as lovebirds and sparring partners Ralph and Alice Kramden in "The Honeymooners." Sheila MacRae replaced Meadows as Alice in a later version from 1966-70 on "The Jackie Gleason Show."

A native of London, MacRae made a cameo as herself on "I Love Lucy" in the 50s.
