Judi Clare Meredith (October 13, 1936 – April 30, 2014) was a former American actress. In 1962, she married director Gary Nelson with whom she had two sons. She died in Las Vegas, Nevada at the age of seventy-seven.
Born Judith Clare Boutin Oct. 13, 1936, to Herbert Boutin and Janice M. Starr in Portland, Oregon. Judi graduated from St. Mary's Academy in Portland and was a talented figure skater who became a professional star performer with the Ice Follies. She broke her back in an accident, but returned to skating until she broke her knee cap and was advised by doctors to stop.
Meredith was performing in stock until she was spotted by George Burns at the Pasadena Play House, who cast her in several small roles on The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show beginning in 1955. Through mid-1957, she appeared in small roles on a number of TV shows (including Burns and Allen) billed under her real name of Judi Boutin. Eventually, she assumed the name Judi Meredith, and was cast by Burns in the supporting role of Bonnie Sue McAfee on the Burns and Allen show, becoming a recurring performer on the show in 1957 and 1958. In 1958/59, she appeared in a recurring role as herself on the follow-up series The George Burns Show. 1958 also saw Meredith's film debut, Wild Heritage.
In the 1959-1960 television season, Meredith played Monique Deveraux, a young French woman, in the CBS western series Hotel de Paree, with Earl Holliman, Jeanette Nolan, and Strother Martin. Throughout the 1960s and through early 1970s, Meredith worked steadily, mostly as a guest performer in several American TV series, including Bonanza, 87th Precinct (TV series), Wagon Train, Gunsmoke, "Laramie (TV series)", Have Gun – Will Travel, Death Valley Days, Mannix, and Hawaii Five-O.
Meredith's final screen credit was a guest appearance on a 1973 episode of Toma, following which she retired from acting and left the public eye.
