FOUR LADIES OF THE LES KIMRIS AIRPLANE ACT
VERA COLIET' KIMRIS
Vera was married to Henri's brother Leon, and replaced him when he was injured in a fall. She worked in the act approximately 6 years and left the act after Leon's death and was replaced by Lee. I am not sure of the spelling of Coliet' which was Henri & Leon's real name.
LEE COLLIET' KIMRIS
Lee was formerly Elisabeth Wallenda, having been married to Karl's brother Herman. She worked in the act from the early '40's until retiring in 1964.
TRUDY WILSON STRONG
Here is Trudy posing with our entrance Robot, actually he was a dry-ice fog machine in disguise.Trudy worked in the act from 1964 till 1982.
DONNA "NAJEAN" WILSON
Unlike the other ladies Donna did not work the act over a long period of time. I do believe however, she is the only person to work both sides of the act, when Trudy was expecting Steven, Donna filled in for her for a couple months, and when I had a Stomach Flu in Honolulu and could not work she filled in for me.
