Estelle Getty (1923 – 2008)

Estelle Getty, best known for her role as Sophia Pitrello on The Golden Girls, had died. She was 84.
While Getty’s death was expected (she suffered from advanced dementia), it still saddens me. Bea Arthur might be my favorite Golden Girl, but Estelle Getty holds a special place in my heart.

You can find her New York Times obituary here.

  1. How sorry to hear about this, The Golden girls was one of my favourite series, and Getty as Stallone´s mother was great.
    Kind regards!
