(WTVO) – Actress Betty White had died.

TMZ first reported White passed away in her home Friday morning. Her agent, Jeff Witjas, confirmed the news to People Magazine:

“Even though Betty was about to be 100, I thought she would live forever,” her agent and close friend Jeff Witjas tells PEOPLE in a statement on Friday. “I will miss her terribly and so will the animal world that she loved so much. I don’t think Betty ever feared passing because she always wanted to be with her most beloved husband Allen Ludden. She believed she would be with him again.”

White was 99 years old, just weeks away from turning 100 on January 17th.

She was possibly most known for her role as Rose Nylund in “The Golden Girls”, but has over 100 acting credits to her name.
