Sheila MacRae starred on the Broadway stage and in films, yet it was her small-screen role as the tolerant and brassy wife of a Brooklyn bus driver for which she is most remembered.
MacRae, best known for playing Alice Kramden to Jackie Gleason's Ralph in the 1960s recreation of The Honeymooners, died Thursday. She was 92.
The actress died at the Lillian Booth Actors Home in Englewood, N.J., MacRae's granddaughter Allison Mullavey told the Associated Press on Friday.
