If I had to choose it would

be the one on the right

I don't think this could be her, but the girl 2nd from L is a ringer for Bambi Sicard, married for many years to long-time RB clown Chuck Burnes. Later, in California, they formed the highly-successful talent agency, Periwinkle Productions.

I believe Kenny mentioned

that Chuck had died recently

but I don't have any details

Roger Smith said...

Neither do I. I first met Chuck, Lou Jacobs, Fay Alexander, Doc Henderson, et al, in '57, when RBB came through Texas on rubber tires, playing buildings.

Just talked to Bambi Burnes. Chuck was born on February 2, 1931, and died at 89, on Wednesday, April 29, with complications of Alzheimer's. His son, Chipper Lowell, is posting details on his Facebook page, and invites requests for him to Friend us. Present details are found on the website for Hilgenfeld Mortuary, of Anaheim CA, for Charles "Chuck" Burnes, with an obituary posted by Chipper. Services will be held on Saturday, May 16, at 11 a.m., and video will be available. Chipper further states the circus websites also have notices for Chuck.
