Playboy Playmate And Ozzie & Harriet Star Dies at 89
June’s niece, Tracey Nelson, announced her aunt’s death on Facebook. She wrote, “Sweet, gorgeous Aunt June Blair Nelson has passed away. God bless James and Dan, I love you.” She did not mention a cause of death. June was 89 years old.
June was born in San Francisco in 1933. She worked as a model and landed a few small roles on movies in the 1950s and 1960s. She was the Playboy Playmate of the month in January 1957, and her biggest film role was that same year in the movie “Hell Bound.”
In 1960, June married actor David Nelson, and she also played his wife on the show “The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet.” Her character was June Nelson or Mrs. David Nelson.
June and David had two children together, a son named Daniel and a daughter named Jamie. They stayed together until 1975 when their marriage ended in divorce. In 2011, David died.
Many people have posted tributes to June upon learning about her death.
