Notes

In a profile of Preshy Marker that was published in a New York Times theatre column on June 3, 1962, she explained how she came to be known as Preshy: "When I was little, they called me Esther Nellie. Then they started calling me Precious, but that stopped after I began walking and talking. Precious became Preshy."

Her first job in show business was as a member of Fred Waring's Pennsylvanians. In the profile, she said that Waring "didn't like the name of Preshy Stomne, so he introduced me as Precious Stone, which sounds like something out of burlesque. Then I got married to a man named Marker."
