Gloria Blondell (August 16, 1915 −March 25, 1986) was an actress and voice actor between 1938 and 1962, and was the younger sister of Joan Blondell. In 1935 she appeared in the Broadway production of Three Men on a Horse at the Playhouse in New York City. She is probably best remembered for her role as Honeybee Gillis in the 1950s era sitcom, The Life of Riley. She appeared as enviably curvaceous Grace Foster in one episode of I Love Lucy entitled "The Anniversary Present" (1952). She was married to film producer Albert Broccoli. Gloria Blondell also portrayed an aging prostitute who rescues a town from a trio of criminals in "The Looters," an episode of Wanted Dead or Alive opposite Steve McQueen. For Daisy Duck's second appearance as a Disney cartoon character, Gloria Blondell took over, marking the debut of Daisy's "normal" voice. Blondell would voice Daisy for six of her nine speaking appearances during the classic shorts era.

Her interment was in Glendale's Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery.
