Bea Arthur Passes at 86

Beatrice Arthur, Tony and Emmy Award winning actress and star of the sitcoms “Maude” and “Golden Girls,” passed away at her home earlier today.

She won a Tony for her role of Vera Charles in “Mame,” as well as multiple awards for work on her sitcoms. She also notoriously appeared, along other odd choices like Art Carney and Harvey Korman, in 1978’s “The Star Wars Holiday Special.”

Although the cause of death was unannounced, Ms. Arthur was fighting with cancer for some time. An icon of the small screen and the big stage, she’ll be missed and remembered fondly.
