Another iconic star from my youth gone.
 
At least now Archie and Edith are reunited.

    Just saw that. I never realized she played Eleanor Roosevelt in both a TV movie and on stage. A wonderful, talented actress. RIP

      I once met her in Pittsburgh.  I was walking down Penn Ave. and so was she.  I said hello and that I loved her acting.  She was just like "Edith" very kind and very talkative.  We chatted for a minute, then we went our ways.

            She will always be remembered by the many for All in the Family........ but she was a spectacular actress in many roles, with a superb voice (not at all "Edith")
             
            Some thought she was related to another superb actress, Maureen, but I don't think they were even distant cousins

              Nice story!  Can't imagine her being anything but gracious and kind.  I wonder what she was doing in Pittsburgh?

                She was performing on stage there but I don't remember where.  It was many years ago.

                  Which made interviews with her sound rather odd because her voice didn't seem "right"!

                    Starting at 3pm EDT today, Antenna TV is airing 12 straight hours of Edith-focused "All in the Family" episodes.
