From the L.A. Times:

Sheila MacRae, 92, a versatile actress and singer who performed in a popular 1950s nightclub act with her husband, Gordon MacRae, and appeared opposite Jackie Gleason in his late '60s revival of "The Honeymooners," died Thursday night at the Lillian Booth Actors Home of the Actors Fund in Englewood, N.J. She had undergone surgery a few weeks ago and had apparently been recovering well until this week, said her daughter, actress Heather MacRae.

Mrs. MacRae was Alice Kramden in the Skitlandia version of 'The Honeymooners'.  Pert Kelton was the wife of Ralph Kramden in Pre-Toobworld, and of course, Audrey Meadows is the definitive Alice for Earth Prime-Time.  (Sue Ann Langdon played the role in yet another alternate TV dimension.)  She would also appear on other TV shows like 'Murder, She Wrote' and the first incarnation of 'Parenthood' (both of which exist in the main Toobworld.)


But she also added her own self to the population of Toobworld with an appearance on 'I Love Lucy':

Good night and may God bless....
