In Passing… Estelle Getty (1923-2008)

Actress Estelle Getty passed away this morning at the age of 84. Getty began her career with the movie “Team-Mates” (1978) but was soon in other films such as “Tootsie,” “Mask,” “Mannequin,” and “Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot.” Her real acclaim arrived when she played Sophia Petrillo in the hit TV show, “The Golden Girls,” along with Betty White, Beatrice Arthur, and Rue McClanahan. She retired in 2000, citing health problems.

 

Best wishes for her friends and family.
