Comedic stage and screen actress Betty Garrett passed away Saturday at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center due to an aortic aneurysm. She was 91.

Betty was best known for her roles in the musicals On The Town and Take Me Out to the Ballgame, as well as her television work on All in the Family and Laverne & Shirley. She starred onscreen opposite movie legends Frank Sinatra and Red Skelton.

The "Baby, It's Cold Outside" singer was blacklisted in Hollywood after her husband, actor Larry Parks, testified about his involvement with the Communist party in 1951. Recently, Betty had been performing one-woman shows and teaching musical-comedy at Theatre West, the North Hollywood nonprofit theater she co-founded.
