How come she could still talk? Doesn't everybody with lung cancer lose their voice?

I don't think you lose your voice. Not to be funny but you end up losing your lung and eventually die. I haven't seen the entire run of the show since it last was on network tv so I can't remember the plots.

I've had relatives die of this terrible disease. You don't lose your voice. You eventually lose the ability to breathe. your lungs just eventually stop functioning.

My dad died of lung cancer. He did not lose his voice but it got raspy from the chemo and radiation treatments he received.

What season was the show in when she passed? And didn't she carry on as long as she could?

The series was beginning Season 6 when she died. Bea's last work aired on Oct. 26, 1968 -- just her voice (episode 4 that season). Her last filmed work on the series aired on Oct. 19, 1968 (episode 3 that season).

Seven seasons total for the series, 1963-1970.

The final work was not at all substantial, for obvious reasons. In the one ep I recall, she's seen from behind waving to the parade, with a stand-in being used except when Bea's face is visible.

I recently came across the death certificate for Bea Benaderet and she did pass away on Oct 13, 1968 with left lung carcinoma listed as the immediate cause of death. I was surprised to see that Emphysema was listed as other significant conditions. I had never heard that before.

I got out my 6th season episodes of PJ and I can't recall for certain if she was in the first episode. However, I know she was in "The Swinging Sweethearts", and only had one very brief scene [that I saw] in "Only a Husband." Of course in "The Valley Has a Baby" there was only the voice over with a stand in for a couple of scenes, most memorably the scene at the foot of Betty Jo's hospital bed.

This thread from an earlier post on here had quite a bit of information.

The sixth-season premiere episode was "Birthplace of a Future President" and Bea appears throughout. While she has scenes throughout "Singing Sweethearts" her total screen time is definitely reduced compared to the previous episode. She appears in "Only a Husband" for a total of 25 seconds. But she looks and sounds well in all these very late performances.

I suspect she was not willing to appear on camera looking less than 100%.

I looked at my calendar and thought the same. 45 years ago. A few episodes I have seen recently has her son Jack Bannon acting with LInda. I am guessing he was late 20's/ I first heard of him on, was it LOU Grant??

Ellen Travolta. It must to interesting to be involved in show business. You meet so many people with the career or off a career of someone else who is in show business. On the other hand, you get tons of publicity and some isn't nice. Studying lines with someone , on camera and so on. Gives you confidence. You can't be shy.
