Betty White has passed away on the 31st December 2021. Though she was 99 and a few weeks shy away from her 100th birthday, White's death was shocking.
The actress, a radio personality and producer, was born in Illinois on 17th January 1922, but the family moved to Los Angeles when Betty was 2.
She started working on the radio when she was 19, and in the 1950s, she got the taste of TV life.
Apart from acting, Betty was among the first female producers in Hollywood.
As a Sue Ann, people saw the young, witty, and energetic White, but the best was yet to come.
Betty won two Emmy awards, and in the 80s, she got a role in Golden Girls.
The show's premise, cast, and of course, Betty was a total hit and one of the best sitcoms to this day.
Rose Nylund was the opposite of Sue Ann, and alongside her co-stars, Rue McClanahan, Bea Arthur, and Estelle Getty, seven seasons of laughter and fun were guaranteed.
In 2010, Betty's Superbowl commercial was another smash hit, and it was followed by Betty hosting the SNL as the oldest person ever.
Again, Betty was on the small screens in another hit sitcom, Hot in Cleveland, alongside stars Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves, and Wendie Malick.
She recently shared the secret to longevity:
"Don't take yourself too seriously. You can lie to others – not that I would – but you cannot lie to yourself."
Betty openly talked about the upsides of reaching her twilight years, joking, "I can stay up as late as I want without asking permission!"
And, of course, her love for animals, dogs especially, will not be forgotten.
In her career, which lasted for eight decades, Betty was never a diva or insulted a person based on prejudice. She supported minorities before it became popular on social media.
People loved her honesty, positivism, and wit:

The LAPD confirmed that Betty died of natural causes. May the first Lady of TV rest in peace!
