(CNN) - Actress June Havoc, whose career began on a vaudeville stage as Baby June 95 years ago, died Sunday at 97, according to her manager.
Havoc's adult career included success on Broadway, television and film, but she was often overshadowed by her sister, the stripper Gypsy Rose Lee.
The story of how her headstrong mother traveled the vaudeville circuit with her young daughters became the basis for the classic musical "Gypsy."
Havoc's last TV acting job was in 1990 on the soap opera "General Hospital."
