The character and her husband Mr. Roper were so popular that they were spun off to their own show, The Ropers (1979), which was not a success. Lindley continued to appear steadily on television and film. One of her last notable roles was a character part in the lesbian romance film Desert Hearts (1985). Lindley wanted to retape one key scene. The director, Donna Dietch, replied that they did not have the budget for reshooting. Lindley said that she would buy a portion of the film if Dietch let her do just that one take again. Dietch agreed, and Lindley kept her word (the film went on to become a cult classic and make a solid profit). Lindley garnered further parts of all sizes in various TV films and series, the last being a recurring role on the CBS sitcom Cybill. Lindley unexpectedly succumbed to leukemia on October 16, 1997, a "Cybill" script by her hospital bedside.
