Actress Joyce Randolph, known for her role as Trixie Norton on the iconic 1950s sitcom “The Honeymooners,” passed away at the age of 99 on Saturday.

Her son, Randolph “Randy” Richard Charles, confirmed the news, according to People. The beloved actress died in her sleep at her New York City home, suffering the effects of old age, as reported by TMZ.

At the time of her death, Randolph was in hospice care and unable to walk. She was the last surviving main cast member of “The Honeymooners,” which followed the lives of bus driver Ralph Kramden and sewer worker Ed Norton, played by Jackie Gleason and Art Carney, respectively. The show’s description on IMDB reads, “struggle to strike it rich while their wives look on with weary patience.”

Debuting in 1955, “The Honeymooners” lasted only one season. Trixie Norton, Randolph’s character, was married to Ed Norton. In addition to her work on the sitcom, Randolph appeared on an episode of “The Ed Sullivan Show” for a sketch about “The Honeymooners” in 1952, as well as in “The Doctors and the Nurses” and “Everything’s Jake,” according to IMDB.

Randolph’s son revealed that the actress will be cremated, as reported by TMZ. He requested that donations be made to the Entertainment Community Fund in lieu of flowers. Randolph had been the sole remaining cast member of “The Honeymooners” quartet for over 20 years, after Art Carney passed away in 2003. Jackie Gleason, who played Kramden, died in 1987, and Audrey Meadows, who portrayed Kramden’s wife, Alice, passed away in 1996.

Why It Matters (op-ed)

The passing of Joyce Randolph, the last surviving main cast member of “The Honeymooners,” is a somber reminder of a bygone era when traditional values and family dynamics were celebrated on television. In those days, shows like “The Honeymooners” depicted the struggles of working-class families and the importance of perseverance and unity.

Nowadays, the entertainment industry is saturated with liberal propaganda and the glorification of morally bankrupt lifestyles. The loss of Randolph signifies the dwindling number of voices that remain from a time when American values were proudly displayed on the small screen. It’s a shame that today’s generation will never experience the same level of wholesome entertainment that “The Honeymooners” provided.

    I still watch the series on “Catchy TV”. I grew up in the 50s. To me it marks the end of an era that will never return. It makes me very sad to see it end. It was such wonderful comedy and they performed it so very well. Rest in peace.

    It is NOT liberal propaganda! There IS NO LIBERAL PROPAGANDA!!! You show your ignorance when you use this term. The ‘liberals’ to which you refer are as ILLIBERAL as it is possible to be. They are Stalinists, left-wing fascists, Nazis. There is absolutely nothing liberal about them. Calling these evil creatures liberal is a sign that you are ignorant of what a liberal is (or, now mostly, was). There is nothing liberal about censorship, there is nothing liberal about worshiping genocidal animals, there is nothing liberal about denying people their rights because they are not ‘the right kind’ of person. Look up the definition. You cannot call these sewer rats liberal unless you are as ignorant as are they!
