Dear Ken: What has happened to Ronnie Claire Edwards, who played Corabeth on The Waltons?
Edwards, 79, lives in Dallas, Texas, where several years ago she bought and redecorated the 1911 St. Josephs German Catholic Church and Academy into her home. The Oklahoma City native, whose last TV job was 12 Miles of Bad Road in 2007, told D magazine about her most famous role, Im recognized in hog barns and at state fairs around the country.The Waltonswas very well written for television. We had good scripts, and I had the best part. Earl Hamner, who created the series, fell in love with the character, so they just wrote and wrote and wrote for her. She was an automatic conflict. As a playwright, she has written Idols of the King, a salute to Elvis, and she is also designing one-of-a-kind coats under the Amorous Adventures label. They are made from very rare turn-of-the-century horse hair and wool carriage lap robes and vintage tapestries, she says.
