Her role as Edna Krabappel, Bart Simpson’s teacher with the snarky laugh, that may have earned her the most fame in recent years. It was a part she held since the show’s premiere in 1990.

Wallace also starred for six seasons as Carol Kester on “The Bob Newhart Show” in the 1970s and reprised the role in the 1990s on “Murphy Brown.”

Marcia Wallace was 70-years-old.
