Bea Arthur, star of hit TV shows such as Maude and The Golden Girls, passed away this weekend. She was 86 years-old and suffering from cancer, and died peacefully in her Los Angeles home with family around her.
Dorothy was the Golden Girl I most related to (as a five year-old, when I watched it with my aunt), so when I saw this, I actually gasped. I also just found out that one of her last roles was on an episode of the awesomely funny Futurama, as the Femputer. Even in her 70s, Bea knew how to choose the good shows.
We'll miss you, Bea.
