Betty White Died: According to her death certificate, American actress Betty White suffered a stroke six days before her away on December 31, 1999. The cherished Golden Girls and Mary Tyler Moore Show performer passed away on December 25 at her home in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles as a result of a cerebrovascular accident, which is the medical term for a stroke, according to the LA County death certificate that The Associated Press obtained on Monday.
White’s doctor provided the cause, as is common in such cases. On Friday, Glenn Kaplan, the person in charge of White’s advance medical directive, received her ashes after she had been cremated. White had been staying near her Los Angeles home throughout the epidemic, according to her longtime agent and friend Jeff Witjas. They first confirmed her death to the Associated Press.
According to the documentation, White’s legal name is Betty Marion Ludden. She married Allen Ludden in 1963, and they were together until he died in 1981. She took on his last name. The first outlet to report on the information from the death certificate was TMZ.
Although White’s comedic skills and can-do attitude made her a television regular for more than 60 years and earned her the respect of several generations of fans, she passed away less than three weeks before reaching her 100th birthday. President Joe Biden, actor Mel Brooks, and numerous other notable politicians and celebrities paid tribute to her after her passing.
