Betty Garrett Dies At Age 90

Broadway star and Golden Globes-winning television character actress Betty Garrett has died at the age of 90. Most of you will probably best remember Garrett as Irene Lorenzo, the wise-cracking feminist plumber next door on All In The Family or as landlady Enda Babish on Laverne & Shirley. In the 1940s Garrett had been a popular Broadway performer, but her subsequent movie career was cut short due to the congressional witch hunt regarding her brief dalliance with the Communist Party.
