Here’s an obituary for Margaret Groening, mother of Matt, whom you may remember is the creator of a little shows known as ‘The Simpsons’. You’ll recognize a lot of these names.
Many of the streets names in Portland, Ore. — Lovejoy, Terwilliger, Flanders, Quimby, et al. — are also better known as characters on the show, but I never realized how directly many of the characters were taken from Groening’s family. A true testament for family and home if there ever was one. [via bleedingcool]
