Story Highlights<br><br>
Actress Yvonne De Carlo, played Lily Munster, dead<br><br>
De Carlo also noted for "Ten Commandments"<br><br>
Actress often appeared in "sex-and-sand" B-movies, Westerns<br><br>
De Carlo had major role in Sondheim's "Follies"<br><br><br><br>
LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- Yvonne De Carlo, the beautiful star who played Moses' wife in "The Ten Commandments" but achieved her greatest popularity on TV's "The Munsters," has died. She was 84.<br><br><br><br>
De Carlo died of natural causes Monday at the Motion Picture & Television facility in suburban Los Angeles, longtime friend and television producer Kevin Burns said Wednesday.<br><br><br><br>
De Carlo, whose shapely figure helped launch her career in B-movie desert adventures and Westerns, rose to more important roles in the 1950s. Later, she had a key role in a landmark Broadway musical, Stephen Sondheim's "Follies."<br><br><br><br>
But for TV viewers, she will always be known as Lily Munster in the 1964-1966 slapstick horror-movie spoof "The Munsters." The series (the name allegedly derived from "fun-monsters") offered a gallery of Universal Pictures grotesques, including Dracula and Frankenstein's monster, in a cobwebbed gothic setting.</div>

My favorite episode of The Munsters featured Lily singing an old ballad while playing the harp. I always like hearing her sing that. She was truly multitalented.
