By my memory she played that role for a lot longer than 6 years!
(I saw repeats of that show for years and years when I was younger... long before I understood what repeats were, and (dating myself here) before color TVs were really prevalent to make anyone that was watching B&W TV shows feel that they were "old".)
Her generation has been whittled away, slowly but surely, as many from that era have passed on. Old age and death eventually catches up with everyone, but it is sad to have so many gone.
