LOS ANGELES. California - Iowa native Marcia Wallace, the voice of Edna Krabappel on "The Simpsons," has died. She was 70.

"Simpsons" executive producer Al Jean said in a statement Saturday that her death is a terrible loss. He said Wallace's "irreplaceable character" would be retired from the show.

The longtime TV actress' credits ranged from playing a wise-cracking receptionist on "The Bob Newhart Show" to appearances on Candice Bergen's "Murphy Brown."

Wallace is from Creston in southwest Iowa.
