Blossom Rock When Grandmama Was Young Stuff Nobody Cares About

Blossom Rock was born on August 21, 1895 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She was the second of three daughters born to Anna May (née Wright; July, 1871 – May 16, 1947) and Daniel MacDonald (April, 1869 – August 8, 1924). As a youth she performed on the vaudeville stage with her younger sister, Jeanette, and later with her husband, actor Clarence W. Rock, whom she married in 1926. They had no children. She also had an elder sister, Elsie MacDonald, with whom she appeared on-stage and in vaudeville.

She later performed in films, credited as Marie Blake, appearing opposite Joan Crawford in her uncredited debut. Her first credited major part was Love Finds Andy Hardy. She became better known, however, as Sally, the hospital switchboard operator in the Dr. Kildare movie series. She later became famous (if not by name) for her television role playing "Grandmama" on The Addams Family.
