Kathy Staff (12th July, 1928 - 14th December, 2008) was a British actress best known for her role as Nora Batty on the long-running BBC sitcom Last Of The Summer Wine from 1973 to 2001, and again from 2002 to her death in 2008. She has also enjoyed long stints on the ITV soap opera Crossroads, as Doris Luke, from 1978 to 1985, and from 2001 to 2002, and as Mrs. Blewitt on Open All Hours between 1976 and 1981.

Kathy played three different roles on Coronation Street, firstly Mrs Thacker in 1968, then Mrs Helliwell in 1971, and finally Vera Hopkins from 1973 to 1974, a role she quit to concentrate on Last Of The Summer Wine. Kathy was something of a soap opera stalwart, having also appeared in episodes of Emmerdale Farm and Doctors.
