Jacob L. "Jakie" Webb|
Lemmon was the daughter of Arthur Lemmon, a successful Broadway ticket broker. In 1941, she married Jacob L. "Jakie" Webb who was a great-great-grandson of Cornelius Vanderbilt. She left him after eight days but remained married long enough for the colorful Webb to marry someone else several years later and face bigamy charges. She later married and divorced musician, Hamish Menzies.
In the late 1950's, Lemmon was the girlfriend of Adventures of Superman star George Reeves. Reeves died of a gunshot wound to the head three days before he was scheduled to leave for an Australian stage tour.
She returned to New York where she lived out the remainder of her life.
