Any time I hear the wind blow, it will whisper the name Edna...

Do you have a source for this? Wikipedia says she's still alive... nothing on CNN, either.

I saw tweets from a few of Marcia Wallace's personal friends, but I didn't publish until I saw this from Yeardley Smith's verified Twitter account:

Cheers to the hilarious, kind, fab Marcia Wallace, who has taken her leave of us. Heaven is now a much funnier place b/c of you, Marcia. Xx

I love the episode Bart The Lover which featured Edna.

Edna was my favorite non-Simpson female on the show. The cougar teacher was just hilarious character and her interaction with awkward Skinner was great. Her interaction with Bart also had some funny but some very sweet moments as well.
