Bea Benaderet Facts
She died during the run of her TV series "Petticoat Junction" (1963), and a stand-in, seen only from the back, and with no dialogue to speak, was used for the last episode in which she supposedly appeared.

In 1936, she joined Orson Welles on radio's "The Campbell Playhouse" and received her first big break when she became a regular on Jack Benny's big radio show, where she created memorable characters such as Gertrude Gearshift. A major radio staple at the time, her numerous appearances included the comedies "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet," "The Great Gildersleeve" and "Fibber McGee and Molly." She also played Lucille Ball's best friend on radio's "My Favorite Husband," which was the precursor to TV's "I Love Lucy" (1951).

Her second husband, Gene Twombly, a sound-effects technician (both worked on "The Jack Benny Program" (1950)), died of a heart attack just four days after she died of cancer.
