Kaye Ballard, the singer, actress and comedienne best known for starring as one of the meddling title characters on the 1960s NBC sitcom The Mothers-in-Law, has died. She was 93. Ballard, a popular nightclub entertainer and star on Broadway who was the first to record the popular tune "Fly Me to the Moon," died Monday at her home in Rancho Mirage, California, The Desert Sun reported.

Just this month, she appeared at a Palm Springs International Film Festival screening of the documentary Kaye Ballard: The Show Goes On. On The Mothers-in-Law, created by famed I Love Lucy writers Bob Carroll and Madelyn Pugh Davis and produced by Desi Arnaz, Ballard starred as Kaye Buell, the big-mouth wife of a TV writer (played by Roger C. Carmel in the first season and Richard Deacon in the second).
