“The Simpsons” Star Marcia Wallace Passes

Marcia Wallace

The vibrant voice-over and on screen actress Marcia Wallace has passed away at the age of 70 years-old. Audiences first got to know Wallace on “The Bob Newhart Show” in the 1970’s when her character, Carol Kester greeted doctors and group-therapy patients. But the role that made her known was on “The Simpsons.” She became the Emmy Award winning voice of Edna Krabappel, the substance-abusing fourth grade teacher of Bart Simpson.

Wallace’s death was confirmed by Al Jean, a producer of “The Simpsons.” Ms. Wallace had been a breast cancer survivor since 1985 and a vocal one, lecturing on the subject and appearing on a 1998 cover of People magazine with fellow survivors.
