An insider confirmed to People that the beloved sitcom actress had 'mild stroke' but reiterated she 'died peacefully in her sleep' on December 31, just three weeks shy of her 100th birthday. 

White made her name on The Mary Tyler Moore Show as Sue Ann Nivens and cemented her star status with TV's The Golden Girls and Hot In Cleveland. Bob Saget dies at 65: The Full House star found dead in an Orlando hotel room by staff just hours after performing stand-up show, and other top stories from January 10, 2022.

'I truly never thought she was going to pass away,' Witjas said. 'She meant the world to me as a friend. She was the most positive person I've ever known.'

Prior to her passing, Betty had participated in a film celebrating her 100th birthday that was set to hit a handful of theaters on Jan. 17.

The producers of Betty White: 100 Years Young said in a statement after her passing, however, that they 'will go forward' with plans to release the movie special on what would have been her 100th birthday.

On December 28, she tweeted: 'My 100th birthday… I cannot believe it is coming up, and People Magazine is celebrating with me! The new issue of @People is available on newsstands nationwide tomorrow.'

Writer John Leavitt joked: 'You gotta admit, having an entire magazine devoted to your 100th birthday hit the racks and then dying before that birthday is excellent comic timing.'

President Joe Biden led tributes to the star, tweeting: 'Betty White brought a smile to the lips of generations of Americans.
