Biography - A Short Wiki

Remembered best as the third wife of wealthy businessman Vincent Astor, this socialite and one-time chairperson of the Vincent Astor Foundation also had a career as a writer. Her publications include The Bluebird is at Home and Patchwork Child: Early Memories.

Her first marriage, to politician John Dryden Kuser, began when she was just seventeen years old and ended eleven years later. Following the death of her second husband, Charles Henry Marshall (an investment banker and the father of her son Anthony), she married Vincent Astor.

She was 105. Astor died of pneumonia at Holly Hill, her more than 60-acre country estate overlooking the Hudson River in New York, said Kenneth Warner, a lawyer for her son, Anthony D. Marshall.
