Abstract (Document Summary)

"She didn't like to tell her age, but she was in her early 80s," her sister, also named [Madeline Foy O'Donnell], said. When she married [Lyle Latell] in 1947, [Mary Foy] was reported as the youngest of the Foy children but her sister said Wednesday that she actually ranked in the middle of her six siblings.

With Mary Foy's death, the older Madeline and her brother Irving, who is retired and lives in Albuquerque, are the only children left of the famous seven which originally also included Bryan, Charley, Richard and [Eddie Foy Jr.]
