Biography[]

Patricia Ann Priest was born on August 15, 1936. She is an American actress known for portraying the second Marilyn Munster on the television show The Munsters (1964–1966).

Priest was born and raised in Bountiful, Utah. Her father was Roy Priest. Her mother, Ivy Baker Priest, was the United States Treasurer from January 28, 1953, to January 29, 1961, whose signature appeared on currency printed during her tenure. Priest resided in Washington, D.C. with her mother. She graduated in 1954 from Washington-Lee High School in Arlington, Virginia. She is also a graduate of Marjorie Webster Junior College.

Early in her career, Priest worked as a singer and actress on local television stations, including WTTG in Washington, D.C. In the late 1950s, she acted in stage productions, including Bus Stop and The Tender Trap.

Priest replaced actress Beverley Owen on the television sitcom The Munsters. After the series ended, Priest appeared on episodes of television programs such as Bewitched, Perry Mason, Death Valley Days, and The Mary Tyler Moore Show in which she played Sue Ann Nivens' (Betty White) unappreciated younger sister.

Her film roles were Looking for Love (1964) with Connie Francis, Easy Come, Easy Go (1967) with Elvis Presley, the horror film The Incredible Two-Headed Transplant (1971) with Bruce Dern, and Some Call It Loving (1973) starring Zalman King.

She retired from acting in the 1980s, but continues to attend some of the nostalgia conventions and "Munster" revivals around the country. She was restoring and selling homes in Idaho, where she has lived for over two decades, but she is now retired.

In 2001, Priest was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. She finished maintenance treatments at St. Luke's Mountain States Tumor Institute and is now in remission.

She married twice, first to Pierce Jensen Jr. (m.1955, div.1967), and to Frederick Hansing in 1981. She has two sons with her first husband.[2]
