Estelle Getty, R.I.P.

With all that’s been going on the last couple of days, forgive me if I didn’t mention the passing of The Golden Girls‘ Estelle Getty. She died a few days ago at the age of 84 due to complications from dementia. Of course, Getty played Sophia on the long-running NBC hit show from 1985 to 1992, and also appeared on the short-lived CBS spin-off The Golden Palace and wound up back on NBC in the Golden Girls‘ spin-off Empty Nest for the show’s final two seasons.
