Arthur died peacefully in her L.A. home with family by her side.  Dan Watt, the family spokesperson, said she had cancer but would give no further details.

"She was a brilliant and witty woman," said Watt, who was Arthur's personal assistant for six years. "Bea will always have a special place in my heart."

Arthur is survived by her sons and two granddaughters. No funeral services are planned.
