Bea Arthur: Thanks For Being A Friend

By: Amelia McDonell-Parry / April 27, 2009

Bea Arthur, best known for her roles as Dorothy on “The Golden Girls” and Maude on “Maude,” died at the age of 86 on Saturday after battling cancer. Her uniquely hilarious contribution to comedy and her place in women’s entertainment history won’t be forgotten and will live on (in syndication). Give our best to Estelle wherever you are, Bea!
