    Default Betty White dead at 99

    Not really the news I was expecting to see today, even if she was on the cusp of 100. Of course I wasn’t around for most of her career and it’s really mostly because of watching rerun shows that I know of her, but a lot of people seemed to have this idea of immortality about her. Every flower dies. Would’ve like to have seen her celebrate her 100th birthday (which would’ve been Jan 17), or at least not have this happen in a time of year which is supposed to be festive for her family and loved ones.

    Damn. She had a celebration planned for her 100th, was hoping she would make it to 100.

    Really awesome that she stayed so healthy up until the end though.

    Love Betty White and her sense of humor. No one lives forever but 99 is as close as you can get.

    She truly was GOLDEN!

    In 1954, Betty White had black tap dancer, Arthur Duncan on her show. When viewers in the South complained and threatened to boycott the show unless he was removed, Betty's response was “I’m sorry. Live with it,” and had him back on the show two more times. NBC ended up cancelling her show over this.

    We just sang it in Walmart and a few people joined in. Even if they don't have it at karaoke, SOMEONE is going to sing it. You'll probably hear it a couple of times.

    Thank you for being a friend 🥺 I was just watching Golden Girls last night after seeing the People magazine cover dedicated to her 100th birthday. She lived a wonderful life.

    So sad to see this living legend leave this world. Rest in peace, Betty. Have fun up there celebrating the amazing life you shared with all of us.

    When World War II broke out, Betty White put her career on hold and volunteered for the American Women's Voluntary Services. Her assignment included the transportation of military supplies through California.

    I think Betty would have found it hilarious that the week she died, after all the false stories of her death, would be the one when she is on the cover of people talking about turning 100. With a party planned too! Just one last perfectly timed joke. She lived life on her terms with kindness and strength.

    absolute legend.

    I sang it, and they only had the short version where the verse is sung once. In the theme song, the lady sings it twice.

    Betty was an animal lover and long time supporter of animal charities.
