RIP Betty White
« on: December 31, 2021, 05:00:16 PM »

We all wanted her to live to 100. Unfortunately she didn’t make it by 17 days.

I think CalTrans should rename the 405 from the 10 to the 101 the Betty White Freeway.  It goes past Brentwood, which is where she lived.

I shared with my mother and grandmother the news.  My mother was saddened.

She shared with me that Betty White shared that the secret to her longevity was that she "never ate anything green", lol.

I'm almost glad she died today instead of tomorrow. People would've lost all hope for the next year if she died on the first day of 2022. RIP.

Looks like a stroke that she suffered 6 days before her death is what did her in. Tough gal to live 6 days afterward at 99 years old.

Today would have been Betty White’s 100th birthday and if you do a Google search of her name, you will find a special Easter Egg with rose petals and a message saying “Thank you for being a friend.”

Parade magazine (newspaper insert) also had a big 100th story on her.

Just about every network is going to run a marathon of episodes in which she appeared--if it hasn't already, including The Golden Girls (where she was the top star, I believe) Hot in Cleveland (same as before), The Mary Tyler Moore Show and many of the game shows where she was a guest player (mainly Password/Password Plus, which was hosted by her husband Allen Ludden). IIRC, she had been widowed for 40 years when she died, as Mr. Ludden passed away in 1981 (and I was 11 at the time). This isn't the first instance of a celebrity's life ending short of reaching 100, because the same thing happened with Zsa Zsa Gabor in 2016, and it damn sure will not be the last. Nevertheless, I'm very disappointed that she wasn't around to celebrate her milestone birthday, but we'll always have plenty of memories to share.
