    'Golden Girls' actress Estelle Getty dies at 84

    LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- Actress Estelle Getty has died at the age of 84.

    Her son, Carl Gettleman, says the co-star of the TV show "The Golden Girls" died early Tuesday at home in Los Angeles.

    Gettleman says she suffered from advanced dementia.

    The diminutive actress spent 40 years struggling for success before landing the role of a lifetime in 1985, playing the sarcastic octogenarian Sophia on "The Golden Girls."

    I just read about this. Very sad. She was pretty funny, especially with Blanche.

    RIP.

    Too bad. I'm glad she had a long full life. My mom loved to watch that show in primetime and later every afternoon in reruns.

    Was she younger than all of them or just Bea? Yeah, that show was a great source of laughter on Saturday nights. A lot of it from Sophia, but just overall well written interaction between the four of them. Rest in Peace, Ms. Getty - thanks for the laughter.

    Younger than Bea and Betty (by about a year), but older than McClanahan.

    hope she is at peace. advanced dementia sounds like it's tough on the family.

    She made the show watchable. Although I'll never admit to seeing it.

    I thought she was already dead. She was good on "The Golden Girls". RIP.

    She was the best part of the show for me. She was easily the funniest of them,even when she would only have to say one or two words to make ya laugh. RIP.
    Good thing to know:
    Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
