"Green Acres" Actress Eva Gabor 1995 Westwood Village Cemetery

Eva Gabor (February 11, 1919 – July 4, 1995) was a Hungarian-born socialite and actress. She was best known for her role on Green Acres as Lisa Douglas, the wife of Eddie Albert's character, Oliver Wendell Douglas, and as a voice actor in three Walt Disney Pictures animated feature films. Gabor had success as an actress in film, Broadway and television. Her elder sisters, Zsa Zsa Gabor and the late Magda Gabor, were also actresses and socialites.


Like her sisters, Eva Gabor was known for her string of marriages; she had five:

1.1939–1942: Eric Drimmer, a Swedish physician
2.27 September 1943–1950: Charles Isaacs
3.8 April 1956–1957: John Williams, an American physician
4.4 October 1959–1972: Richard Brown
5.21 September 1973–1983: Frank Gard Jameson

All of the marriages were childless.


Eva Gabor died on July 4, 1995, aged 76, from respiratory failure and pneumonia in Los Angeles, California, following an accident in which she lost her balance and fell into her bathtub in Mexico, where she had been on vacation.

Although the youngest of the three sisters, she was the first of them to die. On April 1, 1997, her 102-year-old mother, Jolie, died, unaware of Eva's death. On June 6, 1997, her eldest sister Magda died from renal failure.


Eva Gabor is interred in the Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery in Westwood, California. She is buried near her Green Acres co-star Eddie Albert, who died on May 26, 2005, at the age of 99.
