Jean Stapleton dies at 90: The sweetest dingbat that will ever live on!

Jean Stapleton dies at 90. All I can say right off the bat, is she brought to life one of THE most memorable characters in television history. It’s no easy task to create a personality that not only transcends the medium of entertainment but continues to touch your heart with a profound level of empathy and straightforward kindheartedness. Pure genius!

Archie and Edith

Edith

Edith Bunker is that person you wish was your Aunt or your neighbor. Jean Stapleton imbued her character with a life force that was at times hilarious and other times agonizingly honest. A great actress of stage and film and an all around sweet heart… We’ll be watching a marathon of All in the Family in this home in tribute to her passing and I’ll raise a glass of cling peaches in heavy syrup to you Jean… “Everybody’s someone when you love them”
