Betty White dies at 99: report

(NewsNation Now) – Betty White’s beloved American actress, comedian and icon has passed away, just weeks before her big birthday, according to multiple reports.

White is best known for her sitcoms, including her role as Emmy Award-winning Sue Ann Nivens on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and Rose Nylund on “The Golden Girls.”

A pioneer, White was one of the first women to produce a sitcom about Life with Elizabeth, a show she helped create in 1952 for which she also starred and wrote the screenplay.

Her success continued into her 80s and 90s. In 2010 at the age of 88, she joined the cast of “Hot in Cleveland” and became the oldest person ever to host “Saturday Night Live”.

In 2021 Interview with “Everyone” yesterday she was 99order birthday, White attributes her longevity to “being blessed with good health” and “a sense of humour.”

“Don’t take yourself too seriously,” she told the magazine. “You can lie to others – not like me – but you cannot lie to yourself.”

The actress was born in Oak Park, Illinois, on January 17, 1922, as Betty Marion White. But before she turned 2, in the midst of the Great Recession, her family moved to the Los Angeles area, where her career in the show business began at age 8 with a on the radio show “Empire Builders.”

White’s first dream was to become a ranger, but at the time, women were not allowed to hold that job. (US Forest Service made her an honorary ranger at the age of 88.)

So she decided to become a writer in her place and starred in a play at Horace Mann Elementary School in Beverly Hills. Her first television appearance was three months after she graduated from Beverly Hills High School in 1939, White said in a 1994 interview for US Television Archives.

In 1995, White was inducted into the Television Academy Hall of Fame.

Despite a successful entertainment career spanning more than 90 years, White is equally celebrated for her tireless efforts on behalf of animals.
