LOS ANGELES, CA – 90 year old Jane Kean, best known as Trixie alongside Jackie Gleason on a TV revival of The Honeymooners, has died. Kean first started working with Jackie Gleason in the 1940s during the hay day vaudeville.
It was 1966 when Gleason moved to Miami and brought back to life the TV hit show The Honeymooners. Gleason contacted Kean and asked her to play Trixie. Two weeks later she was on a plane and in front of the cameras.
Ms. Kean died Tuesday in Burbank where she was taken after a fall. That fall caused her to have a stroke that took her life.
