Estelle Getty who played Sophia Petrillo on TV’s The Golden Girls, Getty passed away at her Hollywood Hills Home early Tuesday morning, surrounded by family and friends. She was 84, just three days away from her 85th birthday.
I am in my thirties so I was able to enjoy the original installments of The Golden Girls, and Estelle Getty was one of my favorites. I still enjoy watching the long running re-runs late at night, Estelle's character was one of the funniest most outspoken characters every on television. She will be missed, Ms. Nina sends prayers to her family and friends.
