Betty Marion White Ludden (born January 17, 1922 - December 31, 2021), better known as Betty White, was an American actress, comedienne, singer, author, and television personality. With a career lasting over seven decades, she was best known to contemporary audiences for her television roles as Sue Ann Nivens on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Rose Nylund on The Golden Girls. After the death of co-star Rue McClanahan in 2010, she was the only Golden Girl still living at the time. She portrayed Elka Ostrovsky in the TV Land sitcom Hot in Cleveland. She then hosted the practical-joke show Betty White's Off Their Rockers.

Betty White won seven Emmy Awards (six of which were for acting) and had gotten 20 Emmy nominations[2] over the time during her career, including being the first woman to ever receive an Emmy for game show hosting (for the short-lived Just Men!) and was the only person to have won an Emmy in all female performing comedic categories. In May 2010, she became the oldest person to guest-host Saturday Night Live, for which she also won a Primetime Emmy Award. Betty White also held the record for longest time between Emmy nominations for performances – her first was in 1951 and her most recent was in 2011, a span of 60 years – and has become the oldest nominee as of 2012, at age 90. She made other appearances on the game shows Password and Match Game and portrayed recurring roles on Mama's Family, Boston Legal, The Bold and the Beautiful, and Community.

Betty White died at her home in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, on December 31, 2021, at the age of 99. Two days before her death, she had tweeted about how she was looking forward to celebrating her 100th birthday; she died seventeen days short of her 100th birthday.

U.S. President Joe Biden released a statement upon her death, describing her as a "lovely lady" and a "cultural icon who will be sorely missed". Former First Lady Michelle Obama also expressed her sympathy on social media writing, "[She] broke barriers, defied expectations, served her country, and pushed us all to laugh. ... Barack and I join so many around the world who will miss the joy she brought to the world." Many other celebrities, including Ryan Reynolds, Sandra Bullock, Ellen DeGeneres, Seth Meyers, Conan O'Brien, Bob Iger, Paul Feig, Andy Cohen, and Kathy Griffin, also paid tribute. The United States Army also gave its condolences as White served in the army during World War II in the American Women's Voluntary Services.
