Nash received a screen test after being crowned Apple Blossom Queen in her hometown of Wenatchee, Washington while she was still in high school. She began acting in the mid-1940s in several small, uncredited roles.
Her big break came in 1947, when Nash starred in The Big Fix, a film about a gambling ring fixing college basketball games. That led to roles in such films as The Red Stallion, Assigned to Danger, The Checkered Coat, and Phantom From Space, among other movies of the 1940s and ‘50s.
Nash also appeared in such TV shows as “The Lone Ranger,” “The Abbott and Costello Show,” “My Little Margie,” “Dragnet,” and “77 Sunset Strip” before retiring from acting in the early 1960s. She then turned her talents to writing, and wrote several books.
No memorial service has been planned.
