Another passing that marks an era ending. As with so many we will not see her like again. A Kind animal lover. R.I.P. sweet lady.

I'm not sure why this came as such a surprise to me.

Oddly enough, I just watched Betty get "roasted" by Foster Brooks a few days ago.

She was a class act. RIP Betty.

Right? I mean she was 99 but I expected her to live forever.

This actually is too soon. She deserved to make it to 100. She really hadn't looked like she aged much during the last 30 years or so.

I thought she had just made it to 100, but I see now that wasn't going to happen until Jan. 17.

This one took me by surprise I admit. Betty White seemed to be just like Keith Richards - nearly ageless and timeless.

That close?! That just seems like she was robbed.

I just saw this image a day or 2 ago, which is why I thought she had already reached 100.





 

eta: I suppose her death does somehow seem like a fitting way to cap off 2021.

Wow!!
Sad news.
Really sad.

RIP, Betty!
You will be missed.

Someone elsewhere said she must have died in her sleep.
Had she been awake she would have fought.
To be so active and full of life to the end!!!

My first exposure to Betty White was The Golden Girls. Then, I saw Lake Placid.



It upped her cool factor considerably. Ladies who seem so grandmotherly just don't talk like that. It gets even funnier when you know how much of a dedicated animal lover she actually was. In fact, she had retired to concentrate on animal work and her rescues.

So there are two meta levels to it: The dedicated animal love feeding the cow like that, but also the idea that the animal lover just couldn't turn her back on the croc in need.

The world will miss Betty White.

That blows. 😔

I just saw a commercial on YouTube with her promoting her 100th birthday celebration and she was inviting everyone to share it with her live.

So sad, I really liked that spunky ol' gal and her oblivious but much aware comedy style.

RIP

Her role in Lake Placid really caught me by surprise, at the time. I wasn't expecting that.

I usually tend to avoid romantic comedies, but she was pretty funny in 'The Proposal (2009) www.imdb.com...
She's the best part of that movie.

One of the best comedic relief actresses to ever do it, no doubt.

This really caught me off guard too! Geez...

It's that damned observer effect flipping the coin when you least expect it. I bet she's laughing at herself for jinxing things.

R. I. P. Betty. You were a one, dear Lady.

She will be sorely missed.

She had an amazing career and kept me entertained for over half a century.

I was so hoping she'd make it to 100.

Rest in peace.
