LOS ANGELES - Actress Isabel Sanford, best known as "Weezie," Louise Jefferson on the television sitcom "The Jeffersons," died of natural causes, her publicist said Monday. She was 86.
Sanford died Friday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she had been hospitalized since July 4, said Brad Lemack. Her daughter, Pamela Ruff, was at her side, he said. ----
I hope TVLand or Nick@Nite will do a tribute. The Jeffersons were one of my fav shows when I was a kid because George would go off on something silly and Marla Gibbs would put him in his place with a witty put down.
I'm pretty sure they didn't do it, but I wish they did a flashback or a retelling of how Weezie and George got together for the first time. I think it would be an interesting story.

According to IMDb.com:
Her appearance on "The Simpsons" for the episode "Milhouse Doesn't Live Here Anymore" was on February 15, 2004.
But her last appearance was on "TV Land's 2004 TV Land Awards" which was on March 17, 2004.
I remember she, and fellow "Jeffersons" co-star Sherman Hemsley, won a award, I don't remember for what, but Hemsley had to hold her hand as she walked to the stage to get her award.
