In memory of Maureen O'Hara, I found this photo of her working in her mending in a bed jacket and negligee across a bed covered in an amazing crochet coverlet. There is another photo in this series where she is sitting up and under the coverlet and seems to be really mending something.
O'Hara, like Myrna Loy, received an honorary Academy award for her body of work rather than being nominated.
O'Hara held dual U.S. And Irish citizenship. O'Hara was elected CEO and president of the an airline owned by her husband Charles Blair after his death, with the added distinction of becoming the first woman president of a scheduled airline in the U.S.
I love her Aran tam in the movie "The Quiet Man," one of my husband's favorite movies.
