How many Simpsons characters do you recognise from this obituary?

RIP creator Matt Groening’s mum.

THE MOTHER OF Simpsons creator Matt Groening died last month at the age of 94. RIP Margaret Groening.

Now, read her obituary in The Oregonian. (You can see the full thing here.)

You may find a few names seem familiar.


Also, from later in the obit:

Margaret was preceded in death by her oldest daughter, Patty, who died in Jan., 2013. She is survived by her brother, Arnold; her children, Mark, Matt, Lisa and Maggie

Rest in peace, Margaret. You were an inspiration.
