Sad news! Actress Marcia Wallace has passed away at the age of 71, according to the internet. Marcia Wallace was receptionist Carol Kester on The Bob Newhart Show and was also the voice of Mrs. Krabappel on The Simpsons. I met Marcia many times over the years and she was always super sweet. I remember the first time I saw her flash her signature smile in person, it really lit up my day. May she rest in peace.
