    (January 23, 1923-July 15, 1986)
    Acted on TV in 'Holiday Hotel (1951),' 'Meet Millie (1952-56),' 'The New Scooby-Doo Movies (voice-1972),' 'St. Elsewhere (1984-85)' and 'Night Court (1985-86)'
    She was a chain smoker.
    Between 1976-82, she played 6 different characters on the TV series 'Barney Miller.'
    She replaced Selma Diamond on 'Night Court,' who died of lung cancer after one season, only to last one season herself before dying of cancer brought on by smoking.
    The similarities continue. Both she and Diamond were short, had raspy voices from years of smoking, played the feisty female bailiff role on the show and were named 'Selma' and 'Florence' respectively.
    She had a long career on radio and got her start at age 4 when she appeared on Orson Welles' 'Mercury Theater of the Air.'
    Her brother was actor Billy Halop, one of the original Dead End/East Side Kids.
    She went uncredited in the films 'The Glass Bottom Boat' (1966) and 'Pretty In Pink' (1986).
    Her character in 'St. Elsewhere,' Mrs. Hufnagel, was only supposed to be in one episode, but her role was so well received the writers found a way to get her into 15 more episodes.
    She developed breast cancer that metastasized, so biographies on her alternate between her dying of breast or lung cancer.
