I guess she lived a good, long life. I enjoyed her on the Golden Girls. She was 'classy'.

What a wonderful actress we have lost and the ultimate comedienne!

I loved the show Maude and of course there was nothing funnier than Golden Girl's.

What? She is my fav actress from the 70s - 90s. Her deadpan humor is the best. I will miss her. :(

I have great memories of watching Maude with my parents. My mother would laugh so hard when she said, "Walter! Sit!" Such a wonderful dry wit. She was one of the greats.

One of my best memories has her in it.

My Grandma was the sweetest little lady. She was a mennonite. Do you know what they are? Very conservative kind of like the Amish. TV's were absolutely banned in their homes.

So my Grammy never had one when I was little. My PopPop died and my Grammy got a teeny tiny TV. It was black and white and she kept it in her closet. She didn't tell anyone.

Sometimes my sister and I would get to sleep over on Saturday nights at her apartment. We would all get ready for bed and then she would pull down the TV from the closet and we would watch The Golden Girls together. What a nice memory. I miss her.
