Bea came to everyone’ attention first in the classic series All in the Family, which gave rise to her own spin-off series for the Maude character. Seven years after that series ended, Bea became part of the cast for what many people will member her for- The Golden Girls.

The Golden Girls would win 10 Emmys during its run, and garnered a global following due to its strong cast, great scripts, unique premise and vibrant humour. She leaves behind a body of work that has entertained millions of people for decades.

She always came across as a reliable actress and a determined woman. A positive role model for women everywhere, she was part of an abortion storyline during the Maude show that made her very popular with the feminist movement.
