Zuzu from ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’

posted by Nell Minow

Thanks to my pal Kathy Deane for alerting me to this website from the actress who played Zuzu in “It’s a Wonderful Life.” She was the little girl who asked her dad, played by Jimmy Stewart, to fix the petals on her flower. That movie, so dear to the hearts of so many people, has inspired her to share her memories and to keep the movie’s message alive. Like the movie’s hero, George Bailey, she has had to struggle with some of life’s most difficult and painful challenges. But she has been sustained by her faith in the difference each of us can make in the lives of others. On her website, she invites fans of the movie and anyone who feels their lives have been touched by angels to write in with their stories.
