But it is her work with Ball that has given her the most longevity for the TV viewer. Although not as memorable as Vivian Vance as Ball's cohort, Croft actually worked with the red-haired comedienne for more years, She also did not perform the outrageous stunts that her predecessor did, instead providing a comfortable confidante in lieu of a comrade-in-arms. After the demise of "Here's Lucy", Croft more or less retired yet was a frequent interviewee on retrospective tributes to Ball and appeared at We Love Lucy Fan Club conventions.
