The legendary actress, who delighted fans as Rose Nylund on The Golden Girls , passed away at her home in Los Angeles on Friday, Dec. 31.
"Even though Betty was about to be 100, I thought she would live forever," her agent Jeff Witjas confirmed to People . "I will miss her terribly and so will the animal world that she loved so much. I don't think Betty ever feared passing because she always wanted to be with her most beloved husband Allen Ludden. She believed she would be with him again."
While authorities could not confirm her identity at this time, LAPD told E! News they responded to a death investigation at 9:30 a.m. on Friday morning. "We're currently there at scene and there is no foul play," authorities said. "It seems like just a natural death investigation."
Earlier this year, on Jan. 17, White took to her Instagram story to celebrate her 99th birthday. "Would you believe it?! she wrote. "It's my 99th birthday which means I can stay up as late as I want without asking." Alongside her message, White shared a video clips from her "long-lost series" The Pet Set .
"I am just so proud of the "Pet Set,'" she continued. "I hope everyone is well and staying safe. We will get through this."
