You might not know the name "Kathryn Joosten," but there's a good chance you'd recognize her face.
Joosten, who didn't begin acting until age 42, mostly played lovable older characters — many of whom died. (Not always by natural causes either. Goddamn you, drunk driver who hit Mrs. Landingham.) Her other credits include Scrubs, My Name Is Earl, and Dharma & Greg.
Also, if this photo is any indication, she was kind of a badass.
