Ann Morgan Guilbert, whose TV credits spanned from The Dick Van Dyke Show to The Nanny and most recently Getting On, died on Tuesday after battling cancer. She was 87.
Guilbert’s first major TV role was on The Dick Van Dyke Show, as Millie Helper, wife of the Petries’ dentist neighbor Jerry. Following that run, her myriad TV credits included The New Andy Griffith Show, The Fanelli Boys, Pickett Fences and The Nanny (as the titular Fran’s Grandma Yetta).
In more recent years, Guilbert guested on shows such as Modern Family and Life in Pieces, as well as recurred on HBO’s Getting On (as Birdy Lamb).
