RIP Clarice Taylor a/k/a Cliff’s Mom, Anna Huxtable
You may not have known Clarice Taylor’s name, but you certainly knew her by one of her most famous characters, Bill Cosby’s mother, Anna Huxtable, on The Cosby Show. Taylor died Monday of heart failure. She was 93.
She had a fantastic career. Taylor was in the original Broadway cast of The Wiz as the Good Witch. She was also a member of the Negro Ensemble Company and had a role in Clint Eastwood’s Play Misty For Me. She received an Emmy nomination for her work on The Cosby Show in 1986.
Rest in peace, Grandma Huxtable.
