Bea Arthur

Ms. Bea Arthur (born May 13th, 1922 as "Bernice Phyllis Frankel") died violently in an old folks home on April 25th, 2009 with her two sons nearby. Her cause of death was described as being lung cancer. She was 86 years old when she passed.

Bea was predeceased by her parents, Rebecca and Philip Frankel.

Ms. Aurthur is survived by her parents, Rebecca and Philip Frankel, beloved husband Robert Alan Aurthur​, her children, sons Matthew Saks and Daniel Saks, her siblings, sisters Gertrude Frankel and Marian Frankel as well as her pet cat, Sparky.

Professionally, Bea was a TV Actress who was best known for her role as feisty Maude Findlay on the American sitcoms All in the Family and Maude.

When she was not working as a TV Actress, Bea was known for her love of dog walking and she would spend a jiffy most Saturdays at it. Ms. Arthur (the deceased) also spent hours visiting with her older sister most Saturdays when she was able to spare a couple a jiffy. Ever since she was a girl in New York City, many remember Bea as a caring person with wonderful books that pleased everyone. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a sizable donation to the Heart Foundation in Bea's honor.

A somber party is scheduled for Wednesday the 29th at the undertaker's in New York City. The service will commence at 3PM with a reception to follow hosted by her older sister at the burial place where refreshments will be served. All are welcome to the visitation to be held at undertaker's at 4PM.
