Marla Gibbs

Marla Gibbs (born Margaret Theresa Bradley; June 14, 1931) is an American television and film actress and singer, who in her five decades of television is probably best remembered for playing Louise and George Jefferson's sarcastic maid, Florence Johnston, on The Jeffersons and spinoff Checking In. Since the death of co-star Sherman Hemsley in July 2012, she, Damon Evans and Berlinda Tolbert are the only cast members from the Jeffersons pilot episode still living (although many people may mistakenly think Gibbs was part of the series' original main cast, she didn't become part of the main cast until the series' fourth season). She also starred as Mary Jenkins on the television series 227 and appeared in the film Madea's Witness Protection (2012). She currently plays "Grandma Eddy" on the Byron Allen-produced sitcom The First Family.
