Actress Angela Paton Dies at Age 86: Was in the Movie "Groundhog Day"

From the May 30, 2016, Northwest Herald (McHenry County, Illinois) by AP.

Angela Paton, an actress best-known for appearing with Bill Murray in "Groundhog Day" has died.

Paton played Mrs. Lancaster, the kindly, elderly, small-town innkeeper who played host to Murray on his never-ending day in 1993's "Groundhog Day" movie.

She had 91 film and television credits, nearly all of them after she was in her late 50s.  before that she had a long stage career, mostly in the San Francisco Bay area.

I loved her replying to Bill Murray's question, "Do you have deja vu."  She said, "No, but I'll see if I can get them to make it."
