Maree Andrea Cheatham (born June 2, 1942), better known as Maree Cheatham, is an American actress, best known for her television appearances. She was credited for much of her career as Marie Cheatham. She appeared as Nona on the Nickelodeon comedy Sam & Cat.


She was an original cast member of the daytime serial Days of our Lives, where she played the role of Marie Horton, and a regular cast member of General Hospital, where she played Lucy Coe's wacky and fun-loving Aunt Charlene Simpson. She was also in the soap opera Search for Tomorrow, where she originated the role of the sarcastic and very vampy Stephanie Wilkins, who was Joanne Gardner's arch-enemy. She was replaced on that soap opera by actress/writer Louise Shaffer.

She has also made many guest appearances in TV series such as Gunsmoke, Cagney and Lacey, Quantum Leap, Knots Landing, The Nanny, Dharma and Greg, Profiler, Judging Amy, Scrubs, The West Wing, Monk, Cold Case and Desperate Housewives. She has also appeared in movies, such as Rumor Has It..., Mr. & Mrs. Smith, America's Sweethearts, and a notable cameo in The Wedding Singer, in which she innocently asked Billy Idol what the "mile high club" was.

She was once married to Bill Arvin, but it ended in divorce in 1974. In 1998, she married singer and songwriter Robert Staron (aka Bobbo Staron).[1]
