"Good Night, Ma"

Estelle Getty, the diminutive actress who spent 40 years struggling for success before landing a role of a lifetime in 1985 as the sarcastic octogenarian Sophia on The Golden Girls has died. Getty, who suffered from advanced dementia, was 84.

I had forgotten that she was actually younger than Bea Arthur. The poor dear, it's sad she spent her last years that way.
