From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Nancy Marchand (June 19, 1928 - June 18, 2000) was best known for her Emmy award-winning role on the HBO series, The Sopranos as Soprano family matriarch Livia Soprano, the mother of Tony Soprano. She is also well-remembered in the Emmy-winning role of the autocratic newspaper publisher "Mrs. Pynchon" on the 1980s TV series Lou Grant with Edward Asner. She stood almost 6' tall. She died prior to filming the third season of The Sopranos of emphysema and lung cancer, and the writers wrote her character's death into the story. She died the day before what would have been her 72nd birthday.

She had a long career on Broadway and Off-Broadway, and on television; she also made some films.

Her husband of 48 years, actor Paul Sparer, died of cancer in 1999, not long before her death. She is survived by her three children.
