'Honeymooners' Star Joyce Randolph Dead at 99 Played Ed Norton's Wife, Trixie

Joyce Randolph, who played Trixie Norton on "The Honeymooners," has died ... TMZ has learned.

Her son tells TMZ ... Joyce passed Saturday at her home in New York City. We're told she died in her sleep. She had been suffering from the effects of old age ... unable to walk. She was in hospice care at the time of her death.

Joyce played the wife of Ed Norton, played by Art Carney. They were the best friends and neighbors of Ralph Kramden, who was played by Jackie Gleason, and Audrey Meadows, who played the long-suffering Alice. Ralph, a bus driver, would often get angry at his wife and say, "To the moon, Alice," with fists clenched. That would obviously never be on TV today.

"The Honeymooners" is considered one of the great comedies of all time. The crazy thing ... they only shot 39 episodes, but it endures to this very day.

The show debuted on CBS in 1955. It was on only one season. It was a big hit ... it was the number 2 show, but dropped to 19 and was cancelled.

Joyce snagged the role after Jackie saw her on a chewing gum commercial.

There was a reboot and other projects bringing characters from the show back, but the OG is what everyone remembers.

Joyce was the last surviving member of the main cast.

She leaves behind her son, Randy. He says his mother will be cremated. He asks in lieu of flowers donations be sent to the Entertainment Community Fund.

Joyce was 99. RIP
