In 1982, she appeared in My Favorite Year with a memorable small role as wardrobe mistress for King Kaiser's Comedy Calvalcade, a fictional show which clearly echoed the time and venue of her work for Sid Caesar.
During the run of Night Court she died from lung cancer. (Her character was replaced by a different female bailiff, played by Florence Halop, who likewise died from cancer before the show ended.)
