Elmarie Wendel From "3rd Rock From The Sun" Passes Away At 89

Elmarie Wendel

Wendel was best known for her 3rd Rock From the Sun role as Mrs. Mamie Dubcek, the Solomon family's landlord who often helped them out with romantic issues.

Wendel also voiced Aunt Grizelda in the 2012 film The Lorax.

On the '90s sitcom, Wendel's character was known for her delightfully gaudy attire and oversexed one-liners.

"Wendel's daughter, fellow actress J.C. Wendel, confirmed her mother's passing Saturday evening and paid tribute to her on Instagram, writing, "#ripelmariewendel you were a great mom and a badass dame".

The accompanying image saw the cast of 3rd Rock From The Sun celebrating their 100th episode of the show.

Christian Pulisic scores twice, sets up another vs. Liverpool
Liverpool took the lead Virgil van Dijk in the first half but Dortmund claimed the advantage through a Christian Pulisic double. And now against Dortmund it has happened again, just four minutes into the game before a later error gave away a goal.

"I've just heard from her daughter JC that my friend and colleague from 3rd Rock from the Sun, Elmarie Wendel, has died". Earlier credits include guest spots on Knight Rider, The Jeffersons, The Facts of Life, Murphy Brown, Seinfeld, Major Dad, Santa Barbara, Empty Nest, Weird Science and Murder, She Wrote.

On top of working in comedy, the star worked on and off Broadway before breaking into acting after she moved to Los Angeles.

She appeared in more than 90 episodes of the show's 136 episode run.

As Beaver lovingly recalls of Wendel, "She was raucous, funny, endearing, and terribly, terribly sweet. Goodnight, Mrs Dubcek, wherever you are".

Elmaire was born on a farm in Howard County, Iowa, one of five siblings, and spent her childhood traveling with her musical parents and dancing with her sisters. She was also featured in the video game "Fallout 4" back in 2015.
