Mabel Albertson (July 24, 1901 – September 28, 1982) was an American actress.

Albertson was born in Lynn, Massachusetts, the daughter of Russian-born Jewish immigrants Flora Craft and Leopold Albertson.[1][2] Her brother was actor Jack Albertson. Albertson's mother, a stock actress, supported the family by working in a shoe factory.[1]

She was best known as Phyllis Stephens, Darrin's interfering mother on the television sitcom Bewitched, who inevitably ended her stays at the Stephens' home by saying, "Frank [her husband], take me home. I've got a sick headache."

She also played Donald Hollinger's mother on That Girl, Howard Sprague's mother on The Andy Griffith Show, Dick Preston's mother on The New Dick Van Dyke Show, and Mrs. Van Hoskins, a wealthy woman whose jewels are stolen, in the screwball comedy, What's Up, Doc? (1972).

Her son George Englund was once married to Cloris Leachman. Her grandson George Englund, Jr. was once married to Sharon Stone.

She died of Alzheimer's disease on September 28, 1982, at the age of 81, in Santa Monica, California. Mabel Albertson's remains were cremated and scattered in the Pacific Ocean.
