A veteran character actress from Philadelphia who appeared onscreen from the late 1910s, surly looking Dorothea Wolbert (aka Ella Wolbert) was a favorite of low-budget entrepreneur J.P. McGowan, for whom she played scores of aunts and domestics. Wolbert's career lasted well into the television era and she is perhaps best remembered in the raffle sequence in the 1955 I Love Lucy episode "Rocky's European Booking."
