LOS ANGELES (AP) - Jane Kean, best known as Ed Norton's beleaguered wife Trixie on a TV revival of "The Honeymooners," has died. She was 90.
Kean, of Toluca Lake, died Tuesday at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center in Burbank where she was taken after complications from a fall.
Her niece, Deirdre Wolpert, confirmed the death Thursday.
Born in Hartford, Conn., on April 10, 1923, Kean got into show business at an early age along with her sister, Betty, with the encouragement of her mother. She made her Broadway debut in 1943.
But she is best known for playing Trixie the 1966 TV revival of Jackie Gleason's hit show.
In addition to Wolpert, she is survived by a stepson, Joseph Hecht Jr., his family and Wolpert's husband and two children.
