Jean Stapleton won three Emmys and was nominated five other times for her role as Edith Bunker, the lovable "dingbat" wife of Archie Bunker (Caroll O'Connor) on the classic CBS sitcom "All in the Family." Her vibrant career took her to other high places, earning two more nominations for her role as Eleanor Roosevelt in "First Lady of the World" and for a guest spot on "Grace Under Fire."
