Estelle Harris who voiced Mrs. Potato Head in Pixar’s Toy Story has passed away Saturday Night of natural causes in her home in Palm Desert, California at the age of 93.
“It is with the greatest remorse and sadness to announce that Estelle Harris has passed on this evening at 6:25pm,” her son Glen Harris, who held her as she drew her final breath, told Deadline. “Her kindness, passion, sensitivity, humor, empathy and love were practically unrivaled, and she will be terribly missed by all those who knew her.”
She also played Muriel, the lazy maid at The Tipton Hotel, on the Disney Channel series The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.
Many fans will remember her high-pitched voice from the hit show Seinfeld where she played Mrs. Costanza.
But did you know she also played Timon’s mother on the Timon & Pumbaa TV series as well?
She actually had many roles for Disney over the years:
Harris was a spokesperson for Iams Senior Food Plus pet food for dogs and cats, an extension of her lifelong love of animals.
She married Sy in 1953, and they had two sons, Eric and Glen, and a daughter, Taryn.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family.
