Bea Arthur passed away on Saturday April 25th at the age of 86. Best known for her role as Dorothy on the Golden Girls, Bea played the sarcastic, biting shrew to a tee. Pop the hood for more

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 further 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.”

R.I.P. Bea.

    Truly one-of-a-kind. No one else could have been “Maude” or “Dorothy” like Bea Arthur. She was the consumate professional. Her light in the business and the world will be missed.
