Michael Landon’s first wife, Dodie Levy-Fraser, lived a private life after their divorce. She passed away in 2015.
Michael Landon, born Eugene Maurice Orowitz, married Dodie Levy-Fraser in 1956. She was a legal secretary, and this was Landon’s first marriage. Together, they adopted two sons, Mark and Josh. However, their marriage ended in divorce in 1962. After their separation, Dodie maintained a life away from the public eye, and little is known about her activities or personal life post-divorce.
Landon’s career, on the other hand, continued to flourish after the divorce. He became a household name for his roles on popular television shows such as “Bonanza,” “Little House on the Prairie,” and “Highway to Heaven.” Despite his success, Landon’s personal life was often complicated. He married three times and had a total of nine children.
Dodie Levy-Fraser largely stayed out of the spotlight, and as such, there is limited information available about her life following the divorce from Landon. She is known to have kept a low profile and did not remarry publicly. Her death in 2015 marked the end of a life that was mostly kept private, with few details shared with the media or public. Michael Landon himself passed away in 1991 from pancreatic cancer, leaving behind a legacy as a beloved actor and director.
