Bea Arthur passed away earlier today. Bea had cancer, but died at home peacefully and surrounded by family. She was 86 years old.
As everyone knows, Bea Arthur starred on two AMAZING comedies, Maude and Golden Girls. She was nominated for 11 Emmys between the two shows.
I’m really saddened by this news. I grew up watching the Golden Girls on Saturday nights on NBC, and I feel like Bea was such a big part of my childhood. It’s really sad to hear she’s passed on. My thoughts and prayers go to her and her family.
