I always loved watching Jean’s work. She was a great lady.

All in the Family star Jean  Stapleton joined other great actresses and actors in Hollywood heaven on June 1st.

As originally envisioned by All in the Family creator Norman Lear, Edith Bunker was a tart voice of truth meant to put her bigoted husband Archie in his place.

Even in the January 1971 pilot episode of the immediately controversial series, Edith gives it right back to her husband, like every sitcom wife from Alice Kramden in the past to Peg Bundy in the future.

You’re going to be missed Jean!
