(FOX 35) – Betty White, a legendary TV actress known for her iconic roles in “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and “The Golden Girls,” has died, according to multiple reports. She was 99.
A representative for White confirmed her death to People Magazine and TMZ, which was first to report the news. White’s death comes just weeks before her 100th birthday.
In a statement, White’s close friend and agent Jeff Witjas said he believed “she would live forever.”
“I will miss her terribly and so will the animal world that she loved so much,” Witjas said. “I don’t think Betty ever feared passing because she always wanted to be with her most beloved husband Allen Ludden. She believed she would be with him again.”
White had just done an interview with People Magazine that hit stands this week in which the actress shared her secrets to a happy life. She noted feeling “so lucky” to be in good health and joked that trying to “avoid anything green” was key to her longevity. A one-day movie event was also just announced last week on what would have been her centennial birthday in 900 theaters nationwide — Jan. 17, 2022.
