American actress, one of the most familiar faces seen on TV, appearing in hundreds of series episodes from the mid-'50s to mid-'70s. Onscreen from 1957, her work ranged from "Father Knows Best" to "Night Gallery," as well as her role as a regular on the daytime soap "Days of Our Lives," in the mid '70s. Her longest running role on TV was that of Ann Howard in the popular soap opera "Peyton Place." Among her directing credits were episodes of "M*A*S*H*," and "Trapper John M.D."

The daughter of astrologer Ruth Hale Oliver, she had three half-brothers from her dad's second marriage. She became an author, director and pilot, winning the Powder Puff Derby race in 1970 with her own leer jet. She was named Pilot of the Year by the Association of Executive Pilots. In her book "Odyssey," 1983, she described her attempts to be the first woman to fly a single-engine plane from New York to Moscow.

Oliver never married. She died of cancer on 10 May 1990 in Woodland Hills, California.
