Ellen Abertini Dow, known as the rapping grandma from The Wedding Singer (1998), passed away monday. She was 101 years old.
Dow did not start her film career until she was already in her 70s, but is known for memorable roles in The Wedding Singer, the dirty-talking grandma in Wedding Crashers, as well as appearances in Seinfeld and other TV shows. However her cover of The Sugarhill Gang's "Rapper's Delight", will always be our favorite memory.
Condolences to her friends and family, may she rest in peace.
