“The Simpsons” recently paid a tribute to the late Marcia Wallace, voice of Edna Krabappel. The episode, which aired on Sunday, Mar. 9, was the last to feature the character of Krabappel—teacher at Springfield Elementary School. Wallace was the voice of Krabappel for over two decades and over 100 episodes—ranging from 1990-2013.
A memorial episode had aired in 2013 as well. The tribute included the iconic scene of Bart Simpson writing on the chalkboard, this time with the words, “We’ll really miss you Mrs. K.” An in memoriam message then appeared toward the end of the episode. Wallace passed away Oct. 25, 2013 at the age of 70.
The most recent tribute included Ned Flanders daydreaming about Edna and then musing over her recognizable laugh. Nelson ends the scene with a “Ha ha!” Then, “I miss her too.”
Devout fans of the show and the irreplaceable character of Krabappel took to Twitter to express their sadness over the character’s retirement.

Seems like that will be the last appearance of Edna Krabappel. Fitting to end on the signature "Ha!" #simpsons
