Her life was filled with multiple struggles – being diagnosed with breast cancer in 1985, losing her husband to pancreatic cancer the same year she began her memorable work in The Simpsons – but managed to provide a great career as a comedic actress and voice actor. Here are just a few of the roles she had – all of which were great.
