Joan Vohs

Joan Vohs, a Rockette, model and actress, died June 11 of natural causes in Tarzana, Calif. She was 73.

The youngest Radio City Rockette, age 16 at the time, the native New Yorker caught Hollywood’s attention as a Connover model and was cast accordingly, playing blond beauties in such films as “The Girl From Jones Beach,” “My Dream Is Yours,” “Yes, Sir, That’s My Baby” and “It’s a Great Feeling.”

Her film career did not outlast the 1950s, but she left behind some memorable roles in such films as “Fort Ti” and “Crazylegs.”

After guest roles on such TV series as “Perry Mason,” “Maverick” and “Frontier” and a recurring role on “Family Affair,” Vohs retired from acting in 1966 to raise her family.

She is survived by husband John Stephens, two children, a sister and a grandson.

The family has asked that memorial donations be made to the Audubon Society of the San Fernando Valley.
