Joyce Randolph has passed away at the age of 99, her son confirmed to TMZ on Sunday.
The actress, who was best known for playing Trixie Norton in the 1955 CBS sitcom The Honeymooners, was the last surviving member of the main cast before her passing.
Her son Randy revealed to TMZ that his mother succumbed to the effects of old age.
Norton’s sitcom revolved around NYC bus driver Ralph Kramden, portrayed by Jackie Gleason, who was known for a sassy attitude that made him yell at his wife, Alice, out of habit.
The couple lived in a building next to Trixie and her spouse Ed who was played by comedian Art Carney.
Besides her contributions to The Honeymooners, Joyce also made a series of smaller appearances in shows like The Nurses, Modern Romances, The Plainclothesman, and The Clock.
From 1952 to 1957, Randolph also appeared in 79 episodes of The Jackie Gleason Show.
The beloved actress previously opened up about her career and revealed how she made her first appearance on television in 1946.
She also explained that her role in The Honeymooners had a massive impact on her professional career.
“One year while (my son) was in college at Yale, he came home and said, ‘Did you know that guys and girls come up to me and ask, ‘Is your mom really Trixie?’’ I guess he hadn’t paid much attention before then,” she said in an interview with The San Antonio Express in 2000.
Years before that, she told the Orlando Sentinel that some directors would avoid her after the CBS sitcom because she was already too well recognized as Trixie.
“For years after that role, directors would say: ‘No, we can’t use her. She’s too well-known as Trixie,’” Randolph explained in 1993.
Our thoughts remain with Joyce’s loved ones during this challenging time.
