Alma Bennett

Alma Bennett was born Alma LONG, her parents were Fred Long and Doris McRae (per her marriage certificates to Blackie Whiteford and Freddie Bennett) in Chewelah, Stevens County, Washington (per her passport application) rather than Seattle, King County, Washington as most sites state. Alma took the Bennett name when her mother Doris McRae Long married Charles William Bennett. (Not sure if Fred Long died or they divorced as I've not found a death or divorce certificate.) Alma actually married Frederick Clayton Bennett, Charles William Bennett's youngest brother, on December 3, 1924 in Los Angeles County. Frederick 'Freddie' died December 2, 1928, one day short of their fourth anniversary from pneumonia, influenza and strep infection, leaving Alma a widow. (Some sites say they divorced but her marriage certificate to Harry J Spingler lists her as a widow, not divorced.) (Freddie is buried at Hollywood Forever Cemetery and has a long bio about his and Alma's life.) Alma then married her agent, Harry J Spingler on September 16, 1929 in West Hollywood and they divorced on April 22, 1953. Alma then married John Penman 'Blackie' Whiteford, an uncredited actor in over 350 movies, on December 23, 1954 and remained married to him until her death on September 16, 1958 (her wedding anniversary with Harry J Spingler). She died in Los Angeles, Los Angeles County, California and is buried at the Chapel of the Pines Crematory in Los Angeles (she was cremated and apparently didn't have an obituary in the newspaper). Blackie Whiteford died March 21, 1962 in Hollywood and is buried at Pierce Brothers Valhalla Cemetery in Los Angeles.

Way too young - and how sad that your life was considered too obscure to place an obit. This is sad. Wish I could have seen your movies - will have to check out TCM sometime. Pretty lady. RIP.
