Memories of Jean Stapleton From ‘All in The Family’ [VIDEO]

Jean Stapleton - All in the Family

I was saddened over the weekend to hear that actress Jean Stapleton, who was best known for her role as Edith, the wife of Archie Bunker — in “All in the Family” died on Friday at the age of 90, according to the LA Times. Her family announced her death from natural causes on Saturday.

Growing up in the 70’s you couldn’t turn on the television without seeing one of the most beloved characters cast opposite Carrol O’ Connor, who played the obnoxious and bigoted Archie Bunker. Stapelton had a very unique voice when it came to talking and singing if you heard it, you automatically knew who it was.

Stapleton won three Emmys for her portrayal of Edith, which she played from 1971 to 1979. After Rob Reiner and Sally Struthers left the show, Stapleton occasionally appeared on the spinoff “Archie Bunker’s Place” before leaving the show completely. The 1980 season of the show began with Archie mourning Edith’s death.

As we mourn Stapleton, the scene in which Archie mourns Edith (a scene O’Connor won a Peabody Award for) seems fitting:

I also included the infamous ‘All In The Family’ theme song. Boy, they just don’t make TV shows like this anymore.
