‘Seinfeld’ Fans Pay Tribute To The Late Liz Sheridan
Although the beloved actress featured in dozens of TV shows and movies throughout the decades, she may be best known for her role as Helen Seinfeld, Jerry’s adoring mother. She appeared in around twenty episodes, starting with “The Stakeout” early in season 2 all the way up to the show’s finale in 1998.
Fans took to Twitter to celebrate some of her best moments on the NBC sitcom and to pay tribute to a beloved actress.

Wow. Liz Sheridan from #Seinfeld passed away too? Just 5 days after her birthday and not long after Estelle Harris passed away. She knew how to bring the type of energy her character needed.

RIP Liz Sheridan, who was part of a theory of mine that she was actually Fran from the Kids in the Hall who left Gordon and moved to Queens and married Morty Seinfeld. https://t.co/4E35KVWmcU

How could anyone not like Jerry? The ever supportive mother of a son who in her eyes could never do anything wrong.
REST IN PEACE Liz Sheridan 💔💔🙏🏿🙏🏿
