London: The Golden Girls star Rue McClanahan has died following a stroke. She was 76.
McClanahan, who underwent heart bypass surgery last year, played feisty Southern belle Blanche in the popular series, reports a news channel.
She’s the third of the main cast members to pass away.
Only Betty White remains, following the deaths of Estelle Getty and Bea Arthur, who died in 2008 and 2009.
