The old National Velvet TV series is still popular in parts of the world, especially Australia where Lori was well-known. May her memory be eternal!

I didn't realize she guested on Leave It to Beaver, but I do remember
her in the TV version of National Velvet (which I saw many years before
I saw the movie).

I only learned about Lori's passing in the past couple of weeks. So sorry to hear of it. I'm not sure why there wasn't more reporting on her death when it took place. I always liked the soft, sweet image she portrayed on "National Velvet". In some other roles, she was shown as boy crazy, etc. Of course, she also had some dramatic parts in films and on TV. R.I.P.

She was in a 'My Three Sons' episode with Jerry Mathers. They played a young married couple and Jerry had a mustache!

Where did you hear it? My guess would be either Wikipedia or IMDb which is where I found out about it.

I was putting her name through a search engine and it took me to a website that is dedicated to her called "Lori Martin Lives Here". On that website is a link to the "Find A Grave' website which showed information about her life, her date of death, a couple of photos, etc.

She really had quite a bit of airtime in the My Three Sons episode she did with Jerry Mathers. They played apartment neighbors to Rob (Don Grady) and Katie (Tina Cole).
