I heard that she was dead! I remember her tour de force performance as Edith. But honestly, I thought she’d died years ago.
No, she lived pretty long. Carroll O’Connor (Archie Bunker) died a while ago in 2001.
“She’ll definitely be missed!” Indeed!
I always get sad when a famous actor/actress dies in their ’90s, because I’m secretly hoping that they’d make it to 100, lol! The only really famous ones that I’ve known to make it to 100 have been George Burns and Bob Hope. I’m hoping Norman Lloyd makes it.
Oh, I know what you mean. At least Norman Lloyd is now getting close. So fingers crossed for him to make it (and hopefully in good health).
