She checked out before the ball can drop. Thank you for being a friend all these years. Condolences to her family and many fans. She will always live in our hearts.
Knowing her personality and sense of humor, she was probably mad she didn't die at 100. That's what made her special. She had a quick wit and would do or say anything to make others laugh -- in her own way. There will never be another like her.

This is so heartbreaking... She had only just recently started that she was so grateful to be almost 100, and to still be in such great health. Rest in peace Miss Betty ❤
My maternal grandmother loved her show Golden Girls. She’s passed away herself back in 2013 at age 93, but she knew well who Betty White was. Caught reruns of her show when I was little in the 90s. Used to watch it with my grandma.

Respect to a fine woman with wit to boot! Betty is now happily reunited with her Golden Girls cast, Mary Tyler Moore, and Ed Asner up there… 🙏

My mother just passed Xmas morning. She as well as my entire family loved Betty so much! I hope they are having a big party up there right now and living it up to ring in the new year with no more worries! I've been enjoying Betty my entire life, even content she produced before I was even alive. It seems as if heaven needed some amazing women to spice it up a bit for 2022!
What an iconic soul Who shared her beauty with all of us.
Sepp Eisenmann
Sepp Eisenmann:
Her mom was smart too for saying 'Now they know the secret' to describe the passing of someone. It somehow eases the grief of those left behind, & also makes death less scary, esp. for people fearful of it. Betty White will be greatly missed bec. of her great character, esp. her cheerful personality.
