    Ach, I teared up hearing of this while driving home. She was an evergreen, versatile talent--I thought she was wonderful in every performance I've seen. RIP.

    Frau Blucher alone makes her iconic, but she did so much more. I liked her as the super prickly grandma on Malcom in the Middle as well.

    Always a name I loved to see in the credits. RIP.

    She was so good in so many different types of roles, too- the embittered housewife in The Last Picture, as Dorothy Parker in Ladies in the Corridor and, of course, the iconic comedic roles. As a sitcom guy, she'll always be Phyllis to me. I'm happy she had such a great career. I hope her life was the same. RIP.

    The story goes with Blucher,she didn't know what it meant until she asked Mel Brooks about it when Young Frankenstein:The Musical opened. She said to Mel "I don't get it. Every time they mention my name,the horses react the way they do. Why is that?" Mel told her it's because it's German for glue.
