Re: Lady Isabelle Barnett


Lady Isobel Barnett (June 30 1918 - October 20 1980) was a British
television personality, popular during the 1950s and 1960s.
Isobel Barnett was born in Aberdeen,Scotland. She appeared as an actress,
but it was as a panellist on BBC television shows such as What's My Line
that she became famous. Elegant and witty, she was regarded by audiences as
the epitome of the British aristocracy.
When the more informal culture of the 1960s and 1970s brought an end to her
television career, she descended into a reclusive and eccentric existence.
In 1980, she was found guilty in court of a shoplifting offence, an event
which briefly brought her back into the public eye. Four days later she was
found dead in her home, having committed suicide...........:-((

| Lady Isobel Barnett was a friend of Diana Grenfell I believe. A TV celeb.
| way back in the 50/60s, I think, in the UK who was a gardener and
| regretfully didn't have a very enjoyable life in her later years.
