Watch The Simpsons Say Good-bye to Mrs. Krabappel

After a 30-year battle with breast cancer, Marcia Wallace passed away last October, at age 70. At the time, The Simpsons’ "tremendously saddened" show-runner Al Jean said the show intended on retiring "her irreplaceable character," Mrs. Edna Krabappel. Last night, in a epilogue after the primary story was wrapped, the show said good-bye to her. In a brief scene, Mrs. Krabappel and her husband, Ned Flanders, are out dancing and, well, we don’t want to spoil the touching rest.
