She played the inept handywoman Ralph Monroe on the 1960s CBS sitcom.
Mary Grace Canfield, a veteran comic character actress who played handywoman Ralph Monroe on the CBS sitcom Green Acres, has died. She was 89.
Her daughter, Phoebe Alexiades, told the Associated Press that Canfield died of lung cancer on Saturday at a hospice in Santa Barbara.
Canfield appeared as the overall-wearing tomboy Ralph on 41 episodes of Green Acres, the fish-out-of-water comedy that starred Eva Gabor and Eddie Albert as rich city folks who move to the country. The show aired from September 1965 until April 1971.
"Albert, do you REALLY think you are old enough to know what love is?"
"I must be Pa. I love you, I have for a long time."
