Elmarie Wendel, one of the most experienced and hard-working people in show business, has recently passed away the long age of 89.


Wendel drew her last breath on Saturday, July 21, 2018, but the details surrounding her death are yet to be revealed since her daughter, J.C, whose real name is Jennifer, preferred not to dwell on it.

J.C. took to her Instagram account on Saturday to let her fans and followers know that her loving mother had died, which prompted many people to send their condolences.

J.C., who is also an actress, having starred in The X Files, Quantum Leap and Nash Bridges, described the woman who brought her into the world as a 'great mom.'

The Instagram post had a picture of the cast of 3rd Rock from the Sun, the series in which Wendel portrayed Mrs. Mamie Dubcek, probably the most famous part of her career.

Jim Beaver, who had the pleasure of working alongside Wendel on the TV hit show 3rd Rock from the Sun, playing the role of Happy Doug, also used social media to pay his respects to the late 89-year-old.


Aside from her part on the comedy show, Wendel appeared in several other famous series, such as Seinfeld, Love & War, Murder, She Wrote, and Empty Nest.

She had a recurring role on George Lopez as Gina, a character that she played from 2003 to 2007. However, her latest project on the small screen was on The Exes as Ruthie.

In 2012, she lent her voice to Dr. Seuss' movie adaptation, The Lorax, in which she played the role of Aunt Grizelda, and took a leap into the video game world in 2015 with Fallout 4, having voiced three different characters - Mandy Stiles, Cathy and Pulowski.
