Frances Bay, ‘Happy Gilmore’ and ‘Seinfeld’ actress, dead at 92
By Sarah Anne Hughes

Frances Bay. (Los Angeles Times) Frances Bay, a veteran character actress known for playing sweet old ladies, died Thursday from pneumonia, the Associated Press reports. She was 92.

Bay started her acting career late in life, beginning with a small role in the 1978 Goldie Hawn film, “Foul Play.” From there, she went on to star in over 100 television shows and films.

The Canadian actress played many grandmothers during her career, most notably Adam Sandler’s in “Happy Gilmore” and Arthur “The Fonz” Fonzarelli’s on “Happy Days.” Her best known role may forever be the woman who had her marble rye stolen in a 1996 episode of “Seinfeld.”

In 2002, Bay was struck by a car and had part of her right leg amputated. Despite the injury, Bay returned to acting and received a star on Canada’s Walk of Fame in 2008. Her last role was on the ABC sitcom, “The Middle.”

Yes. I was reading about this on IMDB. Very very sad. Why do good people all have to pass away into nothingness? Such is the way of things in this world. I find it all so daunting, Rusty.

R.I.P Frances
