MacRae’s granddaughter, Allison Mullavey, on Friday told The Associated Press that the actress died Thursday at the Lillian Booth Actors Home in Englewood, N.J.

A singer, dancer and actress, she was married to “Oklahoma” star Gordon MacRae for 26 years and they appeared together in 1964 on “The Ed Sullivan Show” when the Beatles were featured.

MacRae replaced Audrey Meadows as Alice Kramden in a later version of “The Honeymooners” from 1966-70 on “The Jackie Gleason Show.” She was the last survivor from the ’60s Gleason show.

Actress Heather MacRae says her mother referred to herself as “the last Mrs. Kramden.”

MacRae suffered from dementia but was otherwise in good health. Her daughter says she had been hospitalized for a minor surgical procedure. Her death came suddenly Thursday night, apparently the result of old age.
