G. was born on 4 August 1908 in New York, America.

Her father was a businessman.

She finished public school and learned for three semesters in high school.

She participated in the main roles of her school's productions. During a benefit performance that her relatives had put on, she had at the age of nine the opportunity to sing several songs at the Lenox Theatre.

The directors of the theatre, Jacobs and Goldberg, heard her and took her into the troupe to act in child roles. The playwrights Siegel and Lillian wrote into their play a special children's role for her.

As an adult, G. acted seasons in Baltimore's Folly Theatre, in Montreal with Hollander, in Toronto with Hollander, in Boston with Hollander, 1928-9 in Philadelphia's Arch Street Theatre, and in 1929-30 in Satz's Folks Theatre in New York.
