Beloved TV icon Betty White passed away on December 31 at her home of natural causes, just weeks before her 100th birthday on January 17. White was best known for her stints as ditzy Rose Nylund on THE GOLDEN GIRLS from 1985-92 and the man-hungry Sue Ann Nivens on THE MARY TYLER MOORE show from 1973-77. She won five Prime-Time Emmys and two Daytime Emmys, including a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2015. Betty White: 100 Years Young A Birthday Celebration will play in select theaters in tribute on her birthday.

Soap fans remember the actress for her memorable run as Ann Douglas, the frosty and emotionally distant mother of Pam and Stephanie. White appeared on a recurring basis between 2006-09, during which time the character made peace with her daughters, then passed away peacefully in their arms.
