Betty White, the self-described "lucky old broad" whose sweetly sarcastic senior citizen characters were a beloved fixture on TV shows and movies such as "The Golden Girls," "Boston Legal" and "Hot in Cleveland," died Friday, her agent and close friend Jeff Witjas told People magazine in a statement.
At 99, she was just weeks away from celebrating her 100th birthday on Jan. 17.
"I am the luckiest old broad on two feet," she told CNN in 2017. "I'm still able to get a job, at this age. I will go to my grave saying 'Can I come in and read for that tomorrow?'"
