Rue McClanahan--actress, friend, pal, confidante--has died following a massive stroke. She was 76. People reports:
"She passed away at 1 a.m. this morning," her manager, Barbara Lawrence, tells PEOPLE. "She had a massive stroke."
McClanahan, who played man-happy Blanche Devereaux on the still-popular '80s sitcom Golden Girls, had suffered a minor stroke earlier this year while recovering from bypass surgery. Lawrence adds that at the time of her death Thursday, McClanahan “had her family with her. She went in peace."
Betty White is going to be super bored at this year's Golden Girls 25th Anniversary Reunion.
