Ronnie Claire Edwards, a veteran actress who is best known for playing Corabeth Godsey on “The Waltons” has died. She was 83 years old.

The Oklahoma-born actress began performing in 1963, but her most noted work was during the 1970s. She appeared on several television shows in various roles until taking the part of Corabeth on “The Waltons” in 1975. She remained with the series until 1981, appearing in over 100 episodes. She also appeared in three “Waltons” made-for-TV movies in 1982.

Remaning active into the 21st century, Edwards appeared in the films “Nobody’s Fool” (1986) with Roseanna Arquette, and “The Dead Pool” (1988) featuring Clint Eastwood. She was also in several TV movies such as “Sweet Bird of Youth” (1989), Guess Who’s Coming for Christmas” (1990), and other “Waltons” TV movie in 1993 and 1995. She also made appearances on such shows as “Star Trek: The Next Generation.” Edwards also landed recurring roles in a few more TV series, such as “Boone,” “Sara,” and “Just in Time,” none of these lasting more than a season.

3. Sad. This show was such a part of my childhood.

I still think of that episode where the house burned down. It gave me nightmares.
