"Mrs. Garrett" from THE FACTS OF LIFE. Another part of my childhood has passed away.  Sounds like she was a wonderful person who led an extraordinary life.

Really interesting bit of trivia that I did not know taken from her IMDb page:

Her classmates at Northwestern University included Cloris LeachmanPaul LyndeCharlton HestonMartha HyerPatricia Neal and Agnes Nixon. Because they were seated alphabetically and her last name was Lubotsky, she & Lynde were seated next to each other.

I honestly had no idea she was still alive. Big FACTS OF LIFE fan when I was a kid. 

Interestingly, Lisa Whelchel was doing some event at one of the local churches in the town I work in just this weekend last.

Sounds like she had all her faculties to the end.

I had forgotten she was on CAR 54... until I read the article.

She was terrific in HOT L BALTIMORE, too, though the series only lasted one season. She played the mom of a young guy who was a shut in (never seen in the show) who drove her to absurd extremes.

Living to 92 is quite an achievement. I hope she enjoyed good health, the company of family and friends, and the satisfaction of a long and successful career.
