Clarice Taylor (1917–2011)

From the New York Times:

Clarice Taylor, an actress who was best known as the endearing, self-possessed grandmother on The Cosby Show and who also won an Obie Award for her Off Broadway portrayal of the vaudeville comedienne Moms Mabley, died on Monday at her home in Englewood, N.J. She was 93.
I think of her as Granny Ethel in Wayne Wang and Paul Auster’s Smoke (1995).
