Marcia Wallace, better known as the voice of The Simpsons teacher, Edna Krabappel, passed away on October 25. The long running Fox series paid their respects with a tribute to Wallace during the opening credits of Sunday night’s new episode. The episode, “Four regrettings and a funeral”, had Bart Simpson writing “We’ll really miss you Mrs. K.”

Before the new episode aired this past Sunday, Fox chose to replay the episode, “Ned-liest Catch” which featured Wallace in most of the episode. The story in the episode had Edna dating Ned Flanders, while it was revealed that she had dated most of the men in Springfield including but not limited to Homer and Aerosmith drummer, Joey Kramer, who lent his voice to the ep. Wallace did in fact win an Emmy for her voice work on The Simpsons in a 1992 episode entitled, “Bart The Lover”. In this ep, Edna gives Bart detention and he enacts his revenge by responding to her personal ad in the newspaper. It was Wallace’s 10th episode out of the 177 episodes she worked on.

Wallace passed away October 25, at her home in Los Angeles where she suffered complications from Pneumonia. Wallace was also well-known for her role on The Bob Newhart Show where she played the secretary, Carol Kester. Wallace was 70 years old at the time of her death. Simpsons executive producer, Al Jean released the following statement in regards to Wallace’s untimely passing: "I was tremendously saddened to learn this morning of the passing of the brilliant and gracious Marcia Wallace. She was beloved by all at The Simpsons and we intend to retire her irreplaceable character.”
