Jennifer Leak, a remarkable woman who was known for her strength and talent, passed away on March 18 at the age of 76 in her home in Jupiter, Florida. Leak had been battling progressive supranuclear palsy, a rare neurological disease, in her final years.

Leak and Tim Matheson met while playing step-siblings in the 1968 film Yours, Mine and Ours. In the movie, Matheson portrayed Mike, the son of Henry Fonda’s character, while Leak played Colleen, the daughter of Lucille Ball’s character. The film revolved around a blended family of 18 children.

Born in Cardiff, Wales in 1947, Leak began her screen career in the mid-1960s with the Mike Nichols-directed pilot for Wojeck. She later appeared in soap operas such as The Young and the Restless, Another World, and Guiding Light.

Leak transitioned to a career in real estate sales in the mid-1980s after largely retiring from acting. She was married to Matheson from 1968 to 1971 and then wed James D’Auria in 1977. She is survived by her husband James D’Auria and her brother.
