Ya had to love Edith. Putting up with a guy like Archie. May she rest in peace.

RIP, Ms. Stapleton.

"Archie Bunker's far better half"

Har! But Archie wasn't such a bad guy, I rather liked Archie even with all his many faults!

How sad. "All in the Family" is a ground breaking show. Edith is one of the great characters of TV to be forever immortalized on reruns. R.I.P, Edith Bunker.

One of the best moments is when she stood up to Archie. R.I.P. Edith.

I know of no fictional TV characters who were as loved as Edith Bunker was by so many Americans.

It's almost a cliche for men to refer to their wives as saints. However, whenever I hear that , I think of Mrs. Bunker. If we could take a time machine back to the days when Edith was coming of age, I can think of no better view that of the movie The Best Years of Our Lives. The main women in that film -- played by Myrna Loy, Teresa Wright, and Kathy O'Donnell -- captured American womanhood at its finest.

Jean Stapleton's Edith showed us much of that character.
