Dorothy Bridges, 93, a poet, widow of Sea Hunt actor Lloyd Bridges, and matriarch of the acting family that includes sons Jeff and Beau, has died.
Mrs. Bridges died Feb. 16 of natural causes at her home in the Holmby Hills area of Los Angeles, family spokeswoman Jean Sievers said.
Born Dorothy Dean Simpson on Sept. 19, 1915, in Worcester, Mass., she was married to Lloyd Bridges for 60 years, until his 1998 death. The two met while performing in a play at the University of California, Los Angeles.
She later appeared in a handful of movies and an episode of Sea Hunt with her husband.
In 2005, at age 89, she published You Caught Me Kissing: A Love Story. It included a collection of Valentine's Day poems she wrote to her husband each year, a practice she continued after his death.
