ENGLEWOOD, N.J. (AP) -- The veteran stage, film and TV performer best known for playing Alice Kramden in the 1960s re-creation of "The Honeymooners" has died. Sheila MacRae was 92.

MacRae's granddaughter, Allison Mullavey, on Friday told The Associated Press that the actress died Thursday at the Lillian Booth Actors Home in Englewood, N.J.

A singer, dancer and actress, she was married to "Oklahoma" star Gordon MacRae for 26 years and they appeared together in 1964 on "The Ed Sullivan Show" when the Beatles were featured.

In an earlier version, Audrey Meadows starred with Jackie Gleason as lovebirds and sparring partners Ralph and Alice Kramden in "The Honeymooners." Sheila MacRae replaced Meadows as Alice in a later version from 1966-70 on "The Jackie Gleason Show."

A native of London, MacRae made a cameo as herself on "I Love Lucy" in the 50s.
