    Not a big star, but an actress with many, many credits.

    Dead at 55 after an illness.

    Lone Star is one of my favorite films. First thing I ever saw Chris Cooper in.

    This and Cop Rock had the best farewells of any cancelled shows.

    Amazing film.

    I remember her in La Bamba and she was on a short-lived show called "I married Dora" that had a very young Juliette Lewis in it.

    First thing I remember her in was "*batteries not included" in 1987, a really nice little film with Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy. Right after that was when "I Married Dora" came, I obviously wasn't the only one impressed with her.

    Checking out her imdb page, she worked steadily from the mid-1980s till she died.

    "Modern Family" actress? I've seen almost every one, and she looks only vaguely familiar. Seems she was in TWO episodes.

    I always remember her as the housekeeper who was "diddling" Richard Dreyfus (and then Nick Nolte) in "Down and Out in Beverly Hills."

    For some stupid reason, I thought she was Al Pacino's wife in "Heat," until I looked it up and learned that was Diane Venora.
