Matt Groening's mom, the inspiration for Marge Simpson, dies

Fans of "The Simpsons" are in mourning over the death of a woman most of them never met: series co-creator Matt Groening's mother, Margaret Groening. For most, she will be forever linked with Marge Simpson, her animated namesake.

A paid obituary appearing in Monday's Oregonian newspaper stated the 94-year-old Groening died peacefully in her sleep at home in Portland on April 22. A spokesperson for "The Simpsons" confirmed the obituary and that her son had declined any public comment.
