Rue McClanahan (1934-2010.) I grew up watching this woman on television. Rue was a sensation. From her co-starring role on "Maude" in the 1970's to her reteaming with Bea Arthur on the 80's smash "The Golden Girls," Rue was one of the funniest ladies of her time. Her autobiography is a scream as well. Miss knowing she's around. Loved you, Rue! Loved you madly! RIP.
