wikipedia notes: After a car accident, Jenny Dolly developed depression. Her depression furthered when she was forced to sell the remainder of her jewelry at auction in 1936 After living abroad for nine years, Jenny returned to the United States after her sister invited her to live with her and her husband Irving Netcher in Chicago. It was there that Jenny met Bernard Vinissky, a wealthy lawyer. They were married on June 29, 1935. Vinissky later adopted the two Hungarian war orphans, Klari (1924-2013) and Manzi (1925-1985), that Jenny adopted in 1929. The marriage did little to alleviate Jenny's depression and the couple separated. Jenny took an apartment in Hollywood with her two daughters. On June 1, 1941, she hanged herself from a curtain rod in her apartment.
