Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Often playing waspish or sweet old ladies, Elizabeth Patterson forever earned a place in TV history as Mrs. Trumbull, the neighbor who was Little Ricky's babysitter, on the perennial favorite "I Love Lucy." Although that may remain her best-known part, the actress had begun her career at the turn of the 20th Century on stage and arrived in Hollywood in 1926, appearing in silent films like "The Boy Friend" and "The Return of Peter Grimm." Patterson went on to play the high-pitched Aunt Blanche to John Barrymore's amateur sleuth in several "Bulldog Drummond" programmers in the 1930s. She was well cast as the mother trying to hold her family together in the 1941 feature adaptation of "Tobacco Road" (1941). In all, Patterson appeared in more than 90 films ending her career at age 85 in 1960's "Tall Story."
