Estelle Harris Biography
Who was Estelle Harris ?

Her son, Glen Harris, confirmed her death to Deadline.
Cause of Death
“It is with the utmost remorse and sadness to announce that Estelle Harris passed away tonight at 6:25 p.m.,” Glen Harris told the site.
“Her kindness of hers, passion of hers, sensitivity of hers, humor, empathy and love of hers were virtually unrivaled, and she will be missed terribly by all who knew her.”
Harris was known for her distinctive high-pitched voice, but she may be best remembered as Estelle Costanza on the NBC sitcom “Seinfeld.”
In a 2014 Mother’s Day interview with The Post, she envisioned how her television counterpart and her son might have marked the holiday.
“If George Costanza ever made me a Mother’s Day meal, it would be a bust,” she said at the time. “Everything would turn out horrible. He would probably do it the wrong way: he would be breaking dishes, inviting the wrong people, screwing everything up.”
Harris herself didn’t have the best view of the vacation, she revealed.
“I don’t like any of these holidays,” the famous TV mom said. “I feel like they put them out strictly to make money. I like that every day means something, and not just celebrate it because it has a name.”
Harris was born on April 4, 1928 in Manhattan to Polish Jewish immigrants, according to her imdb profile. Her family later moved to Tarentum, Pennsylvania, where she graduated from high school, according to her profile.
