    Rue McClanahan dies at 76

    "Golden Girls" star Rue McClanahan has died after a massive stroke. The actress passed away at 1:00 a.m. on June 3, her rep tells People. McClanahan, age 76, had previously suffered a minor stroke while recovering from bypass surgery earlier this year.

    Her rep notes that at the time of her death, McClanahan "had her family with her," saying, "She went in peace."

    Though McClanahan will best be remembered for her "Golden Girls" portrayal of Blanche Devereaux, she enjoyed a 50-year television career that included standout roles in "Maude," "The Love Boat," and most recently "Law & Order" and Tyler Perry's "Meet the Browns."

    Born in Healdton, Okla., McClanahan attended the University of Tulsa before moving to New York City where she worked as a file clerk before finding success in the theater. She was a life-long animal welfare advocate and vegetarian and supported PETA.

    I'm sad about finding out that Rue passed away because the only one left is Betty White who played Rose. I just to love that show and I still watch from time to time. It's going to be harder watching it know that three of them have passed on now.

    By the way Rue McClanahan was in an episode of Blue's Clues called Blue's Big Treasure Hunt as Steve's Grandmother.
