God Bless the Fruitcake Lady...

You know, there comes a time when elders reach a certain age, around 80, where they are entitled to say absolutely anything they want! And that is exactly what Marie Rudisill did!

Marie Rudisill, affectionately known to fans of the Tonight Show as the Fruitcake Lady, has passed away at the age of 95 on November 3. The Fruitcake Lady was born in 1911 and was an Aunt of Truman Capote and helped to raise him. In recent years she became well-known for her up-front advice and reprimands on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

I'm gonna miss the Fruitcake Lady, but I rest assured that she is with our Lord in heaven making fruitcakes to celebrate His upcoming birthday!

Here's a couple of classic Fruitcake Lady segments...
