Sad news in Springfield … “Simpsons” creator Matt Groening“s mourning the loss of his beloved 94-year-old mother Margaret … as in Marge … as in Marge Simpson.
In fact, Margaret”s obituary has surfaced online … and it mentions several members of the Groening family — including Homer, Lisa, Maggie and Patty.
FYI — Margaret”s maiden name was Wiggum.
It”s not new “news” that Matt named several of his characters after family members … just interesting to see it in print.
As for Matt”s mom … she died peacefully in her sleep on April 22. Mmmmmmm peace.
Props to Reddit for finding this.
