MacRae, best known for playing Alice Kramden to Jackie Gleason’s Ralph in the 1960s reboot of “The Honeymooners,” died Thursday. She was 92.
The actress died at the Lillian Booth Actors Home in Englewood, MacRae’s granddaughter, Allison Mullavey, told The Associated Press on Friday.
In the 1950s version of “The Honeymooners,” Audrey Meadows starred with Gleason as lovebirds and sparring partners Ralph and Alice Kramden. Sheila MacRae replaced Meadows as the tolerant and brassy wife of a Brooklyn bus driver in a later version from 1966-70 on “The Jackie Gleason Show.” MacRae was the last survivor from the ’60s edition of the show; Jane Kean, who played Trixie Norton, died last fall.
