During the early 1950s, she began appearing on television in such programs as "I Love Lucy", "Have Gun- Will Travel" and "Dr. Kildare", later finding her niche playing matronly roles; she had recurring parts on the series "The Waltons" (as Rose Burton), "The Dukes of Hazzard" (as Lulu Hogg), "Step by Step" (as Ivy Baker) and "Grace Under Fire" (as Jean Kelly). She was associated with Red Skelton as a member of his TV stock company "The Red Skelton Hour" (1966 to 1971).
