The lady best known to younger generations as both Seinfeld’s “marble rye lady” and Happy Gilmore‘s grandma has passed away at the age of 92. She had starred in over 50 films and 100 TV shows, but none brought her the notoriety that she achieved with the two iconic roles mentioned above.

In Happy Gilmore, she played the displaced grandmother on whose behalf Happy took up golf in the hopes of saving her home from that rotten bastard Shooter McGavin. I hate that guy sooooooo much.

Bay was also a memorable Seinfeld character, playing a bakery customer who was unwilling to sell the last marble rye to Jerry for $50, forcing him to steal it.

She hadn’t done much of note in recent years, but she’sup in heaven with Chubbs now, probably wearing KISS makeup.
