McClurg is known for a number of roles, including Principal Rooney's incompetent secretary Grace in Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Lucille Tarlek on WKRP in Cincinnati, perky PTA member (and ally of Stella Johnson), Willamae Jones in the television remake of Harper Valley PTA; next-door neighbor Mrs. Patty Poole on The Hogan Family, nosy next-door neighbor Bonnie Brindle on Small Wonder, the car-rental agent whom Steve Martin berates in Planes, Trains & Automobiles, Mrs. Violet Bleakman on Clifford the Big Red Dog; and as Mrs. Beeker on the long-running family drama 7th Heaven.
McClurg began her career with a role in the 1976 Brian De Palma directed, Stephen King penned horror film Carrie and can be seen in nearly 90 movies and 55 TV episodes, usually typecast as a middle-aged, somewhat stubborn and dimwitted Midwesterner.
