Ava Lowle Willing (1868–1958) was a twice-married socialite who became Lady Ribblesdale. Her first marriage was to Colonel Jack Astor, whom she divorced in 1909.
In 1911 Ava moved to England with her daughter and in 1919, married Thomas Lister, 4th Baron Ribblesdale. After Ribbledale’s death in 1925, Ava moved back to America, and gave up her British citizenship in 1940, leaving her London home to be a shelter for children left homeless by the Blitz.
