Popular self-proclaimed psychic and astrologer who had a syndicated column in hundreds of newspapers and took credit for predicting JFK's death.
She claimed to recognize her psychic abilities from her early childhood, but grew up with dreams of a stage career, which she ended after marriage.
Not all of her predictions came true: despite her prophecy, WW III did not break out in 1958 over several Chinese islands, nor did beat Bill Clinton lose the 1992 presidential election.
She was born in Medford, Wisconsin as the daughter of German immigrant parents.
Allison Dubois was another popular psychic -- she was the inspiration for the television series Medium.
