The Sun can exclusively reveal photos of Allen’s tombstone at the Graceland Cemetery in Mineral Point, Wisconsin, where the beloved actress will likely be buried by his side

The modest tombstone reads Allen E. Ludden, Capt US Army World War II. 

He was born October 5, 1917 in Mineral Point and passed away on June 9, 1981. 

Residents of Mineral Point are proud of the Hollywood connection, as Mayor Jason Basting said: “Allen Ludden and Betty White is our connection to Hollywood here in Mineral Point. 

“For a small town of 2,600 people, it’s pretty neat to have that kind of connection and she’s a legend.”

Betty and Allen were married in 1963 and were together until his death from stomach cancer.


She became a stepmom to his three children, all who survived Betty and live private lives out of the spotlight. 

The Golden Girls actress met her third husband when she was a guest on game show Password, which he hosted from 1961 to 1980.

Their stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame are even next to each other, as she said at the 1988 unveiling of his achievement: “I cannot express what this day means to me. 

“Don’t be surprised if in the wee hours of the morning our stars are fooling around.”

She said during a 2011 interview with Anderson Cooper when asked why she never remarried: “I had the love of my life. If you’ve had the best who needs the rest?”

SAD PASSING

Betty’s agent Jeff Witjas confirmed her death in a statement that read: “Even though Betty was about to be 100, I thought she would live forever.

“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.”

The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed that her death appeared to be of “natural causes.”

Betty passed away just weeks before her 100th birthday on January 17.
