Actress. Born in Worcester, Massachusetts she did not come into acting until quite late. She made her television debut in "Run For Your Life" in 1966 at the age of 74. She appeared in character roles through out the 1960 and 1970 in such television series as "Night Gallery," "Days of Our Live," and "The Mod Squad." Her best remembered role, however, was that of Mother Jefferson who was introduced in a 1974 episode of "All in the Family." She reprised the role once more before the spinoff series, "The Jeffersons" saw her as a recurring character through some thirty episodes from 1975 through 1977; her last appearance was the episode "The Last Leaf." She succumbed to cancer the following year at the age of 86. She was sometimes credited as Zara Cully Brown.
