Thank you and RIP, Betty White

Thank you and RIP, Betty White

We recently lost a very lovely person on December 31: beloved actress, comedian, and former Golden Girl, Betty White has sadly been relieved from this world. She was an early television star who was known for her work in the entertainment industry. Betty White was such a happy and loving person that she became a person people looked up to.Betty White was born on January 17, 1922 in Oak Park, Illinois. Throughout her life, White earned seven Emmy nominations and won the award in 1986. Although Betty White mostly worked in television, she would make special appearances in different movies throughout the years of her life. While White was an actress, she was also an animal rights activist because of her love for animals. White was a fierce advocate for animal adoption, and through the show, The Pet Set, that she produced and starred in, she gave rise to the human and animal bond. Throughout the years, Betty White impacted so many different lives from people who she knew and people who would watch her on television, so I asked questions to teachers and students relating to the impact Betty White had on their life, and this is what I was able to gather:
Alexis Diggs said, “Betty White has made me more confident in what I do and who I am.”
Ansley Long said, “My greatest memory of Betty White was how much laughter and joy she brought me while watching The Golden Girls.”
We lost Betty White due to a cerebrovascular accident, or a stroke, which took place six days before her passing. A couple weeks before her death, she had an interview with People magazine and stated that she was lucky to be in good health and felt so good at her age. Betty White’s agent and friend made a statement to E! News saying, “To all her fabulous fans, I would just say remember Betty’s legacy…The kindness, the goodness, the love of animals, and the laughter that she has left all of us.” Even though she is no longer with us, she will be with us in spirit, but for now: Goodbye, Betty White.
