Marsha Wallace Dead at 70

Marcia-Wallace-Edna-Krabappel

Marcia Wallace — who voiced Edna Krabappel on “The Simpsons” — died last night in Los Angeles.

Marcia’s caregiver say the actress passed away at home with her family by her side– she had been sick for the past few months.

Wallace has been on TV since the 70’s — and spent 3 decades on various game show panels like “Hollywood Squares”, “The $25,000 Pyramid” and “Match Game” … as well as receptionist Carol Kester on “The Bob Newhart Show.”

The actress was also a huge activist for breast cancer after being diagnosed with the disease in 1985.

Marcia’s son Mikey say the actress passed away due to pneumonia complications and other reports saying breast cancer played a role are completely false.
