I didn't know she had been ill at all. I wondered why she didn't show up on the TVLand Awards when they gave Golden Girls a special award. She played a character 20 years older than she really was, and was younger than at least one of the four 'girls' yet was first to pass away.

Betty White is actually the oldest born Jan 1922 with Bea a few months younger than Betty, Estelle is a year younger than Bea and Rue is 11 years younger than Estelle, its weird though that Betty is the eldest out of all them

I forgot where, but I read an article explaining the absenses. One of them just had surgery (hip, I think) and couldn't travel, Betty White couldn't make it, but sent flowers, and the other..uh, I forgot.
