    Dagmar was born in Huntington, WV. She came from a poor family and made something of herself. Everyone was very proud of our family star. I only met her once at a McMillian family reunion. This was many years after she came into the homes of TV viewers. It seems that the only thing that most people remember about her are her, well, breasts. She was also a loving woman who would send her mom money from her earnings. Near the end of her life, she moved back to West Virginia. She moved to Ceredo. This is only about 10 minutes from the Westmoreland district of Huntington. Thanks for keeping her memory alive!moreless
