From SFGate.com:

Rue McClanahan, the Emmy-winning actress who brought the sexually liberated Southern belle Blanche Devereaux to life on the hit TV series “The Golden Girls,” has died. She was 76.

Her manager Barbara Lawrence said McClanahan died Thursday at 1 a.m. of a stroke.

88-year-old Betty White is the only surviving member of the four women who starred in “Golden Girls.” Estelle Getty died in 2008. Bea Arthur died from cancer last year.

Rest in peace.
