It comes only weeks before the icon’s milestone 100th birthday.
Sources told TMZ that the star passed away of natural causes at her home on Thursday night.
Her agent Jeff Witjas she passed peacefully in a statement to Deadline.
“Even though Betty was about to be 100, I thought she would live forever,” Witjas said.
“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.”
Her career skyrocketed with her role as Rose Nylund in the ’80s sitcom The Golden Girls.
Just days before her death, White gushed over celebrating her 100th birthday in a heartbreaking last post.
“My 100th birthday… I cannot believe it is coming up,” she wrote.
