Battled ill-health throughout much of the 1970s, beginning with a series of strokes in 1973. She died of bone cancer.

A founding member of the Albuquerque Little Theater, where she played a vamp in "This Thing Called Love" and a nun in "The Cradle Song," the local theater community helped pay her way to New York. The theater in later years was eventually nicknamed The Vivian Vance Playhouse.

Legend has it that a clause in her television contract required her to stay 10 pounds heavier than costar/producer Lucille Ball.
