Katharine Elizabeth "Betty" Garde (September 19, 1905 - December 25, 1989) was an American stage, radio, film, and television actress. She played Aunt Eller in the original Broadway production of Oklahoma!, but her long acting career also included film, radio, and television.

The 5'10" Garde had a major role in the 1950 movie Caged as a murderous prison inmate. She also appeared in Call Northside 777 (1948) and Cry of the City (1948). Her television credits include appearances on The Honeymooners (in an hilarious turn as the Kramdens' maid, Thelma) and two episodes of The Twilight Zone, including the famous "Midnight Sun" episode opposite Lois Nettleton.
