Stapleton, center, with Carroll O'Connor and Sally Struthers, reaping Emmy Gold for All In The Family

What a sweetheart.  Made me laugh out loud in everything from All in the Family (as Edith Bunker) to Klute (in a cameo as anxious secretary).  What versatility-be it musicals (she was in the original cast of Funny Girl and Bells are Ringing) or drama, hers was a career that ranged from Broadway to TV to features and in her final chapters, back to the stage.  Miss her much, RIP.
