Hollywood's Yvonne De Carlo Dies

Publish date:

Yvonne De Carlo, one of Hollywood’s glamour queens of the 1940s and 1950s, who will be best remembered as TV’s great vampire mom from The Munsters, died January 8 at age 84 of natural causes. Playing Lily Munster in the series that became a syndication smash was one of many instances of De Carlo reinventing herself in a long and varied career. Other highlights include a 1971 Broadway triumph in Stephen Sondheim’s musical Follies and the role of Moses’ wife in Cecil B. DeMille's 1956 epic The Ten Commandments.
