Dixie Carter, best known as Julia Sugarbaker on the hit showDesigning Women has passed away at the age of 70. The news comes from ET where they offer no explanation for her death, but she was 70. Sometimes that’s all the life you have.

In the 80s if you were looking for positive, empowered, female role models on television then Designing Women was pretty much it. Credit for a lot of that has to go to Carter, who lead the cast as the graceful, composed, yet commanding Julia. Strangely, nearly everyone else from Designing went on to have big careers as character actors in film and on television, and though Carter worked on and off after the show finished it’s run in 1993, Julia Sugarbaker is the role for which she’ll always be remembered.
