Has passed at 86. From "Golden Girls" to Pearly Gates.
Friend to liberals, and gays alike.
I remember her 1st appearance in "All In The Family" as Edith's cousin and Archie's Bane, "Maude".
Then found her on my original cast recordings of "Fiddler On Th Roof" as Yente the Matchmaker and "Mame" as the unforgetable Vera Charles, where she sang the above.
Heaven holds a special place for her like.
Update: How could I forget! Lucy Brown in the 1955 Broadway "Threepenny Opera". It was her breakout role!
