About Kelly Jean Van Dyke

Kelly Jean Van Dyke (June 5, 1958 – November 17, 1991) was an American actress and adult film performer (known professionally as Nancee Kelly). She was the daughter of actor Jerry Van Dyke and niece of the actor Dick Van Dyke. Also she was a cousin once removed of Shane Van Dyke.

As an actress she was known for such television programs as My Mother the Car.

Suicide

In May 1991, Van Dyke married actor Jack Nance. On November 17 of that year, Nance (who was in Bass Lake, California filming Meatballs 4 at the time) attempted to console her on the phone as she threatened suicide. After a lightning storm knocked out the phones in Oregon, it subsequently took over 45 minutes for Nance and the director, Bobby Logan, to find a deputy sheriff, who in turn contacted Los Angeles police and the apartment manager. They broke in and found that the 33-year-old had hanged herself
