Jean Stapleton, who played Archie Bunker's long-suffering wife Edith in the long-running 1970s television series "All in the Family," died Friday at her New York City home. She was 90.
Stapleton died of natural causes, her family announced Saturday.
She had been a veteran of stage, film and television when she was cast in the CBS sitcom opposite Carroll O'Connor's loud-mouthed, bigoted Archie Bunker, who often addressed her as "dingbat." She won three Emmys for the role.,0,2810680.story

RIP Dingbat. Hands down the greatest show ever. I wasn't even alive when it was on but my dad had them all taped....Edith and her cling peaches haha
I hate to admit it but I was alive and old enough to watch it back when it was originally aired. It was ground breaking stuff back then. Both Edith and Archie were a "hoot" to watch and funny as heck, especially for that time period.

Great show because of Jean and Carroll O'Conner, who are together again playing their piano and singing aloud.
