RIP a very talented lady.

It made me wonder if she was related to Maureen Stapleton? I'll look it up.

No

She was offered the role of Jessica Fletcher on 'Murder, She Wrote', but turned it down. I know this. Also funny you mention Maureen...last night I watch her in a movie, 'Nuts'.

Anyway, sad news.

Yes you're right - just checked on IMDB.

I really liked Nuts - I thought Maureen and Barbra were very good though Maureen was one of those actresses who always were good in whatever they appeared in.

Re: Jean Stapleton (Edith Bunker) RIP

And here I was thinking she'd already left us. RIP, Jean Stapleton. Your Edith character was a gift in ways most don't realize, but I'm sure you did.

I can't overstate what a huge part of my childhood that show was. Groundbreaking and one of a kind. RIP Jean.

I always thought they were sisters!

Wow, she turned down Jessica Fletcher - not the best career move ever, unless she just didn't fancy the part.

I'll never forget seeing an old episode when I was in America when she said to Archie: I fell on my fanny! I nearly wet myself laughing!

RIP a true professional and warm and funny lady.

Re: Jean Stapleton (Edith Bunker) RIP

Amazing actress and amazing person. I grew up watching All in the Family. Edith was a fantastic character and a gem in American televison history.
