Angela Paton Dead at 86

Angela Paton
Actress Angela Paton has died at age 86.

Her nephew George Woolf says Paton died Thursday, May 26 in Oakland, California, where she had been in hospice care after a recent heart attack.

Paton was best known for her portrayal of Mrs. Lancaster, the kindly, elderly, small-town innkeeper who played host to Murray on his never-ending day in 1993's Groundhog Day.

She had 91 film and television credits, nearly all of them after she was in her late 50s.

In 1989, she had a 6-episode run as Harriet Anderson on CBS primetime soap opera Falcon Crest. Her other TV credits included Grey's Anatomy, ER, L.A. Law and NYPD Blue.

Before that she had a long stage career based mostly in the San Francisco Bay Area, and founded a theater in Berkeley. She most recently appeared in a 2012 run of "Harvey" on Broadway.
