Trailblazer Betty White Passes At Age 99
Confirmed by White's close friend and agent, Jeff Witjas, "Betty died peacefully in her sleep at her home early this morning."
I think I speak for everyone when I say that I thought White would live far past 100. It is very comforting to know that she passed peacefully in her sleep at home.
Just weeks before celebrating her 100 birthday on January 17, White leaves behind a very successful and rewarding career.
Her career began shortly after graduating High School. She started off working in radio and would later receive her own show called The Betty White Show. From there, she would co host bigger shows and would eventually become the main host. She would then transition into television where she would receive numerous award nominations. Her career would then snowball and she never seemed to have lost traction as she was family favorite.
She will be dearly missed 💜
