Yes, I just heard the news! I was shocked...
I didn't know much about her health issues until now. I guess I'd forgotten or didn't know, either way.

Such sad news....

May God be with the family and friends! (esp Betty White!)

Please don't post things like Betty White next. She has accomplished to many things to die on us just yet. Betty will be with us forever. Keep Betty alive with us for years to come. Just because they died right behind each other does no mean Betty will follow that pattern might I add she is the eldest Golden Girl to

Rue was really a sitcom legend. I've been watching her since her Maude days. I wonder what Conrad Bain is feeling about now. First he lost Gary Coleman and now Rue. I also loved her on the GG. She made the character of Blanche just come to life. R.I.P. Rue and thanks for all the many wonderful memories.

That is so ironic because in the episode when Rose had a heart attack, Blanche said "What if Rose had a stroke?" then Blanche died from a stoke, so ironic! Rest in peace, Rue!

Gosh, you're right! I'd forgotten that he starred with both Gary and Rue (he played Rue's husband on Maude, right?). He's got to feel doubly terrible.

Thanks - I seem to remember she was married to another guy on the show because her last name was Cavender (she and her hubby went on vacation with Maude and Walter - then dropped a bombshell that they were splitting up).

I'm so sad right now, Rue was one of my favorite sitcom actress. Betty White is the only Golden Girl still living now

I just saw it on aol news. Shocking. And Estelle, Bea, and Rue passing one year after another is bizarre. R.I.P. Rue. And God Bless Betty!

I haven't been this affected by a celebrity death since Elizabeth Montgomery.

I just found out the depressing, heartbreaking news about Rue's passing. I can not believe that she's gone, not to sound mean or harsh, but I thought Betty was the next to go, not Rue. Now I'm severely depressed and in tears, this is breaking my heart, we keep losing GG left and right. My thoughts and prayers go out to Rue's family and friends'. Well......this tragic loss ruined my whole evening and night. We love and miss you Rue!!!

Default Rue Taken of Life Support by her son

http://blog.zap2it.com/thedishrag/20...ow-wilson.html

Rue McClanahan taken off of life support by son Mark Bish, says husband Morrow Wilson
By Carina MacKenzie | June 3, 2010 4:36 PM ET
On June 3, Rue McClanahan died after Mark Bish, her son from her first marriage, decided to take her off life support. Morrow Wilson, who McClanahan separated from in 2009 after 12 years of marriage, tells Life & Style "In truth, there really was no choice."

Morrow says that McClanahan's health woes began in November after a precautionary stress test revealed she would need bypass surgery. McClanahan was supposed to be presented with a lifetime achievement award at the "Golden: A Gala Tribute to Rue McClanahan" event in November, but her appearance was postponed for her surgery.

While recovering, she suffered a stroke. "The people in her life now say it was minor, but that stroke was massive," Morrow says. "But she got out of the hospital and went home. She was having around-the-clock nursing care, with speech therapy and occupational therapy. We all thought she was on the road to a full recovery."

On Monday June 2, McClanahan suffered a massive brain aneurysm in her New York apartment and was rushed to New York Presbyterian.

"She had a living will saying if she were brain dead, they should pull the plug, but the hospital waited for her son Mark to fly in and make the final decision," Morrow says. He also notes that Rue did not want a funeral service.

McClanahan's longtime friend, Betty White, is enjoying a career resurgence thanks to Facebook and a Snickers ad campaign, but she still made time to keep up with Rue. Morrow says Betty spoke to Rue "every three or four weeks and has said how Rue's speech had come back."

Mark Bish, son of Rue McClanahan, takes her off life support. (PR Photos)
Golden Girls star Rue McClanahan died of a stroke Thursday after being taken off life support by her only surviving son, Mark Bish.
Bish, a 52-year-old actor, was the son of McClanahan from her first marriage. Morrow Wilson, her husband of 12 years, spoke out to the press about Mark Bish's decision to take Rue off life support.
"In truth, there really was no choice," Morrow told Life&Style magazine. "She had a living will saying if she were brain dead, they should pull the plug," he said aiding Mark's decision, while adding there was a catch in her will. Mark had to be the one to make the decision.
"The hospital waited for her son Mark to fly in and make the final decision," Morrow told the mag, noting Rue's request to not have a funeral service in her honor.

Meet Mark Bish. He is the remarkable and classic Golden Girl Rue McClanahan’s son. Such saddening news today after learning the death of his beloved mother. There is so much to reflect on, as the actress successfully made her mark in history. Find out more details and see photos and a video right here.


This is definitely a day of mourning, especially for Mark Bish, the Golden Girl’s only son. Be sure to check out photos and videos below.

As a biography, Mark Bish was born in Ardmore, Oklahoma in 1958 and is 52 years old. He is most-known as actress Rue McClanahan’s son. His father, Tom Bish, was a stage actor in New York City where his parents first met and fell in love. He can be seen in “Intimate Portrait: Rue McClanahan” and has worked as a production assistant for Biosphere 2.

Following an unfortunate massive stoke, Mark Bish’s mother passed way today around 1 am Thursday, June 3rd. According to reports, the actress was taken off life support and left this world peacefully, surrounded by her loved ones; her son, sister, and nephew.

As stated in the Golden Girl’s living will, she included that if “she were brain dead, they should pull the plug”. Ultimately, the final decision was her son Mark’s. So the New York Presbyterian hospital awaited for his arrival so that an absolute agreement could be reached.

To read more about your favorite Golden Girl, be sure to read her autobiography, “My First Five Husbands … And the Ones Who Got Away”.

What an incredible lady! Mark Bish, Rue McClanahan’s son will continue to live her legacy as he is her one and only child. Please leave us your thoughts in the comment box and see pictures and a video below.
