NOOO!!!! Maude died!

LOS ANGELES—Beatrice Arthur, the tall, deep-voiced actress whose razor-sharp delivery of comedy lines made her a TV star in the hit shows "Maude" and "The Golden Girls" and who won a Tony Award for the musical "Mame," has died. She was 86.
She died peacefully at her Los Angeles home early Saturday with her family at her side, family spokesman Dan Watt said. She would have been 87 on May 13.

Arthur had cancer, Watt said, declining to give further details.

"She was a brilliant and witty woman," said Watt, who was Arthur's personal assistant for six years. "Bea will always have a special place in my heart."

Arthur is survived by her sons, Mathew and Daniel, and two granddaughters, Kyra and Violet. No funeral services are planned.

*Bea shall always have a special place in all our hearts.  Thank you for all your years of talent. You were so FIERCE and made an awesome Femputer.*
