Remembering actress Jean Stapleton who was born 93 years ago today on January 19, 1923.
Jean Stapleton is best known for having portrayed Edith Bunker, the long-suffering, yet devoted wife of Archie Bunker (played by Carroll O'Connor) and mother of Gloria Stivic (played by Sally Struthers), on the 1970s sitcom All in the Family. Stapleton was a three-time recipient of the Prime Time Emmy Award for leading actress in a comedy series, and won two Golden Globes in the same category during the show's run. She also made occasional appearances on the All in the Family follow-up series, Archie Bunker's Place, but, tired of the role, asked to be written out of the show during the first season.
She died of natural causes on May 31, 2013 at age 90.
