Stunning photos of a young Betty White

Born on January 17, 1922, in Oak Park, Illinois, Betty White’s career spanned seven decades and was filled with memorable roles that showcased her versatility and charm.

White was a pioneer from the start, creating, producing, and starring in “Life with Elizabeth” in the 1950s, making her one of the first women to exert control in the male-dominated television industry. Her blend of sweetness and wit won hearts on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” as Sue Ann Nivens, earning her two Emmy Awards.

However, it was her role as Rose Nylund on “The Golden Girls” that solidified her status as a beloved cultural icon.

Beyond acting, White was a dedicated animal welfare advocate, supporting various organizations and serving on the board of the Los Angeles Zoo Commission.

White continued to entertain and inspire throughout her life, even hosting “Saturday Night Live” at the age of 88 after a massive fan campaign on Facebook, earning yet another Emmy for her performance.

Betty White passed away on December 31, 2021, just shy of her 100th birthday.
