LOS ANGELES – Beatrice Arthur, the tall, deep-voiced actress whose razor-sharp delivery of comedy lines made her a TV star in the hit shows "Maude" and "The Golden Girls" and who won a Tony Award for the musical "Mame," died Saturday. She was 86.
Arthur died peacefully at her Los Angeles home with her family at her side, family spokesman Dan Watt said. She had cancer, Watt said, declining to give details.
"She was a brilliant and witty woman," said Watt, who was Arthur's personal assistant for six years. "Bea will always have a special place in my heart."

I was a fan of the show back in the 1980's.
RIP

Heather told me about this earlier today. Really sad. She lived a nice, long life. It's still sad. I'm sure Frank DeCaro will remember her on Monday.

God bless and comfort her family and friends...:candle:

That was one of my favorite shows as a kid. Rose and Dorothy were my favorites. Both were hilarious.
