Good Bye Edith Bunker, We Will All Miss You
Those were the days...
No sitcom has ever had the cultural impact as "All in the Family".
While it was Carroll O'Connor who led the laughter with his portrayal of Archie, it was Jean Stapleton as the matriarch of the Bunker family that was heartbeat of the show. She provided the moral compass that was desperately needed. While her career would go on to projects like her stint as Eleanor Roosevelt, she won her Emmys and Golden Globes for Edith.
A piece of our childhood died this weekend when Jean Stapleton passed away at age 90. May she rest in peace.
