Tribute: Jean Stapleton

posted by Nell Minow

We mourn the loss of television great Jean Stapleton, who died today at age 90.  Best known as Edith, the sweet-natured wife of the bombastic Archie Bunker on “All in the Family,” she was often the target of his insults but occasionally showed some asperity by standing up to him.

She had an extensive and varied background in theater, both before and after her iconic role as Edith Bunker.  One of her best stage roles was the owner of the answering service in “Bells Are Ringing,” which she repeated on film.  She even co-starred with the Muppets.

She will be missed.

    Rest in peace dear sweet lady.Heaven has a new angel today. I can hear her and Carrol O’Connor catching up, and then singing the All In The Family theme song! Her family is in my thoughts and prayers. Edith Bunker was one of the greatest characters in TV history. Thank-you Jean for bringing her to life!!
