Forever a Golden Girl

Bea Arthur
(May 13, 1922 – April 25, 2009)

What a force of nature Bea Arthur was. Although a respected and formidable stage actor, Ms. Arthur will alwys be known and beloved for her indelible characters on TVs "Maude" (1972-1978) and "Golden Girls" (1985-1992). Her sharp tongue and precise timing were a joy to behold. May she rest in peace.

  1. I was so sad to see that Bea Arthur had died. She was my favourite Golden Girl, and I remember watching re-runs of Maude on the CBC one summer around midnight every weeknight. I loved her boldness, her strength, and the way she stood as a symbol of triumph over patriarchy. This broad was way before her time! I will sorely miss her. Rest in peace, Bea.
