Monday would have been Betty White's 100th birthday. Unfortunately, the legendary actress passed away on New Year's Eve at the age of 99. It turns out that a few days before her death, a photo was taken of Betty, and to mark her birthday, White's assistant shared that pic on Facebook.
She captioned the post, "Hello Everyone! It’s Kiersten. Betty’s Assistant. On this special day, I wanted to share this photo of Betty. It was taken on 12/20/21. I believe it’s one of the last photos of her. She was radiant and beautiful and as happy as ever. Thanks to all of you who are doing kind things today and every day to make the world a better place ❤️"
A few days after the photograph was taken, Betty would suffer a stroke, which, according to the L.A. County Medical Examiner, is what led to her death on December 31.
While the picture is definitely one of the last of White, she actually filmed something the next day - a thank you for fans as part of the documentary film Betty White: A Celebration. That movie is out now.
