According to TMZ, Mrs. Krabapple will be written off of The Simpsons, but luckily, not any time soon. Before her death, Marcia recorded a year’s worth of episodes, so Edna Krabapple will spend a little more time in Springfield.

For this Simpsons fan, it is truly the end of an era! I grew up with Mrs. Krabapple as my teacher and I always felt like one of her fourth grade students. Fourth grade will not be the same without her.
