In May of 1935 thirty-two year old Maryon attempted suicide by swallowing poison. At the time she was unemployed and was living with her parents at 6370 Franklin Avenue in Los Angeles. She was deeply depressed about her failed movie career and the death of her second husband Harry Wilson. A few days after her suicide attempt Maryon gave an interview to the Los Angeles Times. She said "Friends console me by talking about what I used to be but I'm sick of living in the past."
