‘Million Dollar Listing’ Grandmother Edith Flagg Dies at 94
Edith Flagg, most recently known for her appearances as Josh Flagg’s grandma on his Bravo network TV show ‘Million Dollar Listing,’ died today (Aug. 13) at the age of 94 (according to TMZ).
Aside from being Josh’s sassy grandmother, she was a Holocaust survivor who fled her birth country of Austria when she was just 19. In the 1940s she made her new home in America, where she eventually became a fashion mogul credited for bringing polyester to the U.S. after its discovery in Switzerland. She was also an advocate of the United Jewish Welfare Fund and the City of Hope.
“My grandmother was a legend,” Josh told TMZ, “not only in my eyes, but in the eyes of the countless people she helped and touched. Beverly Hills and L.A. have lost one of the great members of the community.”
It sounds as though Edith lived an incredible life and she will be sorely missed. Our thoughts are with the Flagg family.
