    Mary Grace Canfield

    http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment...cmp=latestnews She was most famous for playing Ralph on Green Acres but I really liked her in the Andy Griffith episode where she is "Mary Grace", Gomer Pyle's date.

    She had appeared in a few episodes of Bewitched as Harriet Kravitz. after Alice Pearce passed away or was near death and couldn't continue as Harriet's sister-in-law Gladys Kravitz. Mary Grace was funny as Ralph Monroe and drove Oliver up the wall. Sid Melton [Ralph Monroe's brother Alf] also passed away a couple of years ago. Ralph was hopelessly in love with Hank Kimball she called him "Hanky". is Tom Lester [Eb] the only surviving cast member of Green Acres now?

    I loved her but find it odd I looked last night and there is a photo of a grave that says she passed in 1983 I'll try to find it.

    They had a Green Acres movie reunion in 1990 Mary Grace, Sid Melton [Alf], Alvy Moore, Tom Lester, Pat Buttram [Mr.Haney] , Frank Cady [Mr.Drucker] reunited with Eddie Albert and Eva Gabor they all reprised their roles, their characters fight to save Hooterville from developers. I saw it on DVD for sale recently at Wal Mart. I wish they would release the other seasons of Green Acres on DVD. so far they only have the first 3 seasons on DVD.

    I remember her best from Something Wicked This Way Comes and Pollyanna. I especially loved her character in SWTWC. RIP, you were a wonderful actress.
