I suppose it had to happen sooner or later. Elaine Stritch has followed Colleen Donaghy to the great beyond


well into her 80s, she played a recurring role on the NBC comedy “30 Rock” as the domineering mother of the television executive played by Alec Baldwin.


A more complete obituary is forthcoming.  Keep kicking heavenly ass, Ms. Stritch!

A nice tribute to Elaine's performances on 30 Rock in Salon:

And Stritch generously allowed a new generation of fans to discover her with her recurring role on “30 Rock.” Her performance, as Jack Donaghy’s mother Colleen, was more instantly accessible than her Broadway turns, and not least because it was airing in network prime-time as opposed to a cast album. Colleen entered the established world of “30 Rock” seamlessly — her son’s need to be the best instantly made sense when we saw how hard-charging and derisive she was.
