"Umbrellas of Cherbourg" French actress Ellen Farner, M.I.A.

This is driving me crazy.
I just saw The Umbrellas of Cherbourg yet again and instead of looking at Catherine Deneuve like I usually do I was looking at Ellen Farner, who played Madeleine, who took care of Guy's aunt, and ended up marrying him.
Intrigued (read: enchanted) I googled, yahoo'ed, and binged her everywhere and could find nary a trace.
Is it possible that she made one movie then retired? Is she still alive? Did she die young? Did she get married and change her name?
This is the first time I've been unable to find something on the Internet; yeah, I guess it's possible, but there's got to be more to her than than one stunning performance. Dang, I hope there is.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
