Marcia was would have been 71 November 1st of this year.

The Simpsons are due to kill off a character this season. If it isn’t Edna, they must be kicking themselves now.

From TMZ:

Marcia Wallace — who voiced Edna Krabappel on “The Simpsons” — died last night in Los Angeles … TMZ has learned.

Marcia’s caregiver tells us … the actress passed away at home with her family by her side. We’re told she had been sick for the past few months … but the caregiver couldn’t go into specifics.

Wallace has been on TV since the 70’s — and spent 3 decades on various game show panels like “Hollywood Squares”, “The $25,000 Pyramid” and “Match Game” … as well as receptionist Carol Kester on “The Bob Newhart Show.”

The actress was also a huge activist for breast cancer … after being diagnosed with the disease in 1985.

She was 70.

    So incredibly sad about this. Glad her family was with her. As a kid, whenever I’d see her, I was struck by how...
