Actress Yvonne De Carlo as Lily Munster.
LOS ANGELES ? Yvonne De Carlo, the beautiful star who played Moses' wife in "The Ten Commandments" but achieved her greatest popularity on TV's slapstick comedy "The Munsters," has died. She was 84.

De Carlo died of natural causes Monday at the Motion Picture & Television facility in suburban Woodland Hills, longtime friend and television producer Kevin Burns said Wednesday.

De Carlo, whose shapely figure helped launch her career in B-movie desert adventures and Westerns, rose to more important roles in the 1950s. Later, she had a key role in a landmark Broadway musical, Stephen Sondheim's "Follies."

But for TV viewers, she will always be known as Lily Munster in the 1964-1966 horror movie spoof "The Munsters." The series (the name allegedly derived from "fun-monsters") offered a gallery of Universal Pictures grotesques, including Dracula and Frankenstein's monster, in a cobwebbed gothic setting.

Rest in Peace, Beautiful Lady.

We will miss you Lilly. I especially liked her in McClintock, the John Wayne movie, where she played the part of Patrick Waynes mother. Patrick Wayne is also the son of the Duke.:computer:

Yvonne DiCarlo was a beautiful lady and quite the talented actress. I heard last night on KDKA that Ms. DiCarlo passed on a destitute woman - basically penniless - and a local gentleman who was a huge fan of hers and got to know her personally is contributing to her funeral expenses to give her some much deserved dignity. :thumbsup:
