PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The secret daughter of film legends Loretta Young and Clark Gable has died at age 76.

Judy Lewis died Friday in the Philadelphia suburb of Gladwyne. That’s according to Rodger McKinney, owner of the Chadwick & McKinney Funeral Home. He says services will be held Saturday.

Lewis, of Palm Springs, Calif., was raised in Los Angeles by Young as her adopted daughter. She was an adult when she learned that Young conceived her during an affair with Gable in the 1930s while they filmed “Call of the Wild.”

Lewis‘ survivors include her daughter, three half brothers and her partner, Steve Rowland.
