Dorothy says she was just a child when Sophia's mother dies.. but during the Mother's Day episode Sophia tells a story of when her mother came to live with her and Sal and Dorothy was an adult in it.
Season 1 (1985-1986) had a slightly different opening sequence consisting of a different shot of the city behind the show's title, one different clip in-between the credits for 'Beatrice Arthur' and Betty White, and a different clip behind the credit for Rue McClanahan. This open was replaced with the 1986 opening for syndication. The original opening has been restored to the season 1 DVD release.
