A daughter of Irish immigrants Sarah and Michael McGowan and born in the Bay Ridge section of Brooklyn, she had one sister, Mary, and two brothers, Peter (1930–2007), a policeman who became a Roman Catholic priest, and James, a policeman whose role as lead negotiator in a hostage crisis was dramatized in the film Dog Day Afternoon.

McGowan was one of photographer William Klein's favorite models. After the release of his film Who Are You, Polly Maggoo?, she disappeared from public view and apparently neither acted nor modeled again, according to Klein.
