Margaret Monteleone Rhea Jeanne Huntington was born in Richmond, Indiana April 1, 1915. She became a dancer in Burlesque and at one point traveled with Danny Thomas in one of his productions. In approximately 1940, she was working in a club in Chicago, Illinois and met a young waiter who had just come to this county. He was six years younger. She was attracted to him and his latin good looks and they developed a relationship. He was soon drafted into the US Army and was transeferred to Texas. Rhea soon followed him to Texas and informed him that she was pregnant. They married and had a little girl, who was born in Tyler, Texas. In two years they had another child, this time a boy. Rhea was a better dancer than a Mother. She wanted to remain on the stage and continue dancing. That caused problems for the children; considering the father was in the Army and the mother on the road dancing. Rhea developed a taste for alcohol. In 1948 a third child was born, this time another son. Rhea just couldn't settle into the homemaker world and left her children to go back on the road. She abandoned her children while the baby was still in diapers.He never knew her as his Mother.
After a divorce, Rhea married again and had three more chidlen, oddly two more boys and a daughter. Alcohol was taking over her world and she left this family too. These children were put into an orphanage in Colorado. Eventually Rhea ended up in California and when she died none of her children knew it...not for years. She lay in the LA county morgue for 30 days because no one claimed her body. A sad ending to a tragic story.
What makes a women chose alcohol and attention over her kids?
My husband was third child of her first marriage.
