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.
