Marcia Wallace, the voice of teacher Edna Krabappel on "The Simpsons," has died.
Simpsons executive producer Al Jean said in a statement Saturday that her death is a terrible loss. He says Wallace's "irreplaceable character" would be retired from the show.
The longtime TV actress' credits ranged from playing a wise-cracking receptionist on The Bob Newhart Show to appearances on Candice Bergen's Murphy Brown.
