Elizabeth Roberts Job
The New York Times cited Elizabeth as an elementary school teacher. And that was all known about her career as of this time. (Of course) her net worth was also a mystery.
Her Newton, Massachusetts-born husband, on the other hand, had reportedly made a net worth of $5 million by 2015.
Robert was born on 18 May 1931 to May Silver, a pianist, and Charles Morse, who worked at a record store and managed a chain of movie theaters. So, he grew up attending several different schools until finding inspiration in a music teacher at Newton High School. Then, following graduation, he left home for New York City to fulfill his dream of becoming an actor. He joined his older brother Richard who, at the time, was already studying acting at the Neighborhood Playhouse.
So it began, his career, with an uncredited role in The Proud and Profane in 1956. Thereon, he was cast as Barnaby Tucker in the original Broadway production of Thornton Wilder’s The Matchmaker. This is what later on marked the launching of his career.

Elizabeth Roberts did not seem to be on Instagram or any other social media platforms.
Her husband Robert, however, was on Twitter @robertalanmorse. And on its BIO he had for some reason worded “friend of carole dandrea” about his ex-wife. It appears Robert and his ex-wife had been amicable towards each other despite their marriage ending in divorce.
Most recently, following his passing, Carole wrote about him on Facebook. He called him the family’s beloved husband, father, and grandfather. She said the family loved how The New York Times paid tribute to him that morning on their front page for his glorious/legendary artistry.
Then, a week before Robert was no more, Carole had expressed how she and “Bob” were so fortunate to have three beautiful loving daughters who gave them five grandkids, all in high school and college now.
