Picture it: Heaven. A small, feisty woman is at the pearly gates.
St. Peter: "Name?" That small woman: "Estelle Getty, aka Sophia Petrillo". St. Peter: "Biggest accomplishment on earth?" Estelle/Sophia: "Keeping 3 middle-aged women in line: a bed-hopping tramp, a ditz, and my daughter, who finally saw some sense and kicked Stan, that yutz of a husband, to the curb". St. Peter: "Sophia!!!!!!!" What took you so long!!! Come on in!!" Rest in peace, Estelle--and thanks for the millions of laughs on the Golden Girls and one of the all-time great characters.




She passed away quite a few years back, didn't she?

Agreed. She was priceless. I always loved the Golden Girls and she was able to make me laugh, no matter what my mood was at the time! God Speed, Estelle.

I think that you are correct she was the youngest of them. I really love that show and it is still on lifetime and no matter how many times I have seen them it still makes me laugh.

She was actually the youngest of the 4, you guys are right--and Sophia was a sage for the ages.

I used to watch the golden girls when I was little (like 5-10). Sophia was always my favorite, because she was funny and reminded me of my grandma. It is sad to see her go.
