Second City is remembering Joyce Sloane, the longtime producer of the improv group, who died last week.

The 80-year old passed away from natural causes last Thursday.

She spent about 50 years with Second City.

Sloane helped discover and develop dozens of comedic legends including John Belushi, Gilda Radner and Bill Murray.

On Tuesday, some members of the comedy troupe talked about how much she loved Chicago and remembered her generous spirit.

Sloane will be honored at another memorial service in Hollywood on March 1.
