SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - In a story Feb. 17 about the death of actress Mary Grace Canfield, The Associated Press reported erroneously the name of the fictional town in which a "Green Acres" TV series character played by Canfield lived. The town is Hooterville, not Hootersville.

A corrected version of the story is below:

"Green Acres'" actress Mary Grace Canfield dies

Mary Grace Canfield, who played Ralph Monroe on TV's "Green Acres," dies at 89

Mary Grace Canfield, a veteran character actress who played handywoman Ralph Monroe on the television show "Green Acres," has died. She was 89.

Her daughter, Phoebe Alexiades, says Canfield died of lung cancer on Saturday at a hospice in the California coastal town of Santa Barbara.

Canfield had appearances on a number of TV shows during a four-decade career, including "General Hospital" and "The Hathaways." She was Harriet Kravitz on four episodes of the 1960s series "Bewitched."

But she was best known for her role of Ralph Monroe in some 40 episodes of "Green Acres," which ran from 1965 to 1971.

Monroe greeted folks in the town of Hooterville with a cheery "howdy doody," wore painters' overalls and was forever working on the Douglas family's bedroom with her brother, Alf.
