Edna Skinner (May 23, 1921 - August 8, 2003) was an American film and television actress notable for playing "Kay Addison," neighbor of Wilbur Post, in the iconic TV series Mister Ed. Her character was replaced months after her onscreen husband (Larry Keating) died; according to Alan Young in his Archive of American Television interview, the writers tried to make her a widow on the show, but finally decided to replace her with another married couple, Gordon and Winnie Kirkwood, played by Leon Ames and Florence MacMichael.

Skinner retired from acting in 1964 and was later a noted authority on fly fishing. She died of heart failure at her home in North Bend, Oregon on August 8, 2003 at the age of 82.[1]
