In Petticoat Junction, Henning was one of three permanent cast members and appeared in 220 episodes of the show from the period between 1963 and 1970, until the show was cancelled.

Henning dated her co-star, Mike Minor, for 5 years before marrying him, first on screen and then in real life. They divorced 5 years later, in 1973, and had no children together.

Minor and Henning, singers as well as actors, often sang duets together. Henning and her onscreen sisters, played by Meredith MacRae and Lori Saunders, also sang in a trio on the show.

Born on September 16, 1944, in Los Angeles, she began her illustrious career as a teenager. Acting in well known productions, as well as musicals, she made a name for herself on shows like Bye Bye Birdie, Gidget, Bus Stop, and Rebel Without a Cause.

After her separation from Minor, Henning went on to marry an American actor, Ashby Adams in 1994. They are still together after 23 years.

Her current net worth is $1 million and her thus far illustrious career appears to have no sign of stopping any time soon.
