Personal life and deathEdit
Blangsted was born in Würzburg, Germany, the daughter of Lilly (Oppenheimer), a homemaker, and Siegmund Siegel, a horse trader.
Widowed in 1982, Blangsted died of natural causes three weeks before her 100th birthday at her Los Angeles home. She was survived by two daughters, two grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. Her elder daughter was born in Switzerland of a teenaged out-of-wedlock relationship. She was told the child had died only to learn in 1984 that the 48 year old daughter was, in fact, alive, and had been adopted by a wealthy Swiss couple from Lausanne. Shortly after, Else fled Europe for the United States in 1937 to escape the scourge of Nazism.
