Ellen Corby, 87, an Emmy-winning actress who played spinsters and prim neighbors but was best known as the grandmother on the hit 1970s series "The Waltons," died Wednesday in Los Angeles. "The Waltons" was not Corby's first series. She appeared on CBS's "Trackdown" in the late 1950s and on NBC's "Please Don't Eat the Daisies" in the mid-1960s.
