Betty White

Updated on June 17, 2017

An adorable woman named Betty White

Betty White, a person I admire a great deal, because she has brought so much happiness into my life, laughter and her good deeds...yes, those are her callings.

When I was younger and living at home, my mother used to tell me how much she liked Betty, so as an adult I watched Betty in whatever program or movie she was in.

I moved to the Midwest in the early 80's and remembered feeling so lonely and far away from family, friends and all that was familiar, until I saw Betty on TV. I felt like I was at home hearing her voice, reminding me of my mother because of how mom felt about her...especially now since mom had passed.

Five years later I moved again, and again I felt lost and alone being away from all that was familiar...until the show "The Golden Girls"...I was so happy laughing again, seeing that lovely face, hearing that voice and just feeling at home with laughter...every night we went to sleep with laughter in our hearts after watching the show....Rose Nylund was my favorite character.

To me laughter is one of the most important things in my life, it makes you feel good mentally and physically. Since I'm not impressed with famous people I have no desire to meet any of them, but Betty White...she is the only actress I have ever wanted to meet, she makes me laugh and feel good inside, I really admire her. Watching the reruns I still laugh, it never gets old for me.

An actress, a comedian, a show host and an animal rights activist... - all rolled into one....

I can't believe how much she resembles my mom in this photo above.

A short synopsis of Betty Marion White.

Born Jan.17, 1922 Oak Park Illinois.

Beginning in 1939 Betty modeled and started her performing career in Little Theater...then in the early 1940s working in Radio portraying "Blondie" as well as performing in "The Great Gildersleeve" and "This Is your FBI."

Later she continued in Radio with her own "The Betty White Show," which transitioned into TV, and on guest appearances in 1949 becoming a regular on several shows.

The early 1950s she continued in Television by hosting and co-founding with several others a Production Studio names Bandy Productions. During that time she hosted and produced her own daily talk show and by 1960s made her debut in a film "Advise and Consent."

Through the early 1970s she appeared on the Tyler Moore show then becoming a regular. In the late 1970s she got her own sitcom "The Betty White Show." During this time she guest appeared on many shows including the "Late Night Show."

The 1980s brought back some recurring roles and she finally became known as Rose Nylund on "The Golden Girls."

Betty has achieved many awards that can be found on various websites, too many to mention here but all well deserved.

      Betty White is an American treasure ... a genius of comedic timing and a genuinely delightful woman with a great sense of humor. Wonderful profile of my favorite "Golden Girl" ... but I also remember her from long before that program.

      Beautiful lens about a very special lady who deserves our admiration. Not many women celebrities have successfully made the transition from the 50s to the new century. Betty White does so with dignity, verve and a great sense of humor! Blessed by an angel.

      Wow! I didn't realize she was 89. She is a funny lady. I don't so much like the raunchier stuff she's doing now. I'm not much for foul language and dirty talk. I remember her being funny and keeping it more PG-13. She's still a comedic treasure thought.

      What a great lens. It is hard to believe she is the only surviving member of the Golden Girls troop left. She is a great actress. I do know that when I go to pick up a movie, if she is in it, I will get it because you know she will make the movie even better.

      Been a fan of Betty's for as long as I can remember. I loved the episodes of the Mary Tyler Moore show when Sue Ann would come through the newsroom, insulting Murray and chasing after Mr, Grant, always with that dimpled smile. Betty White is truly a class act. "Liked" the lens.

      Indeed! She's a fantastic actress! Remember the TV series that happened in Florida and where she lived with two friends, it was so funny! And lastly saw a movie with her too, it was so good to see such high class actress - what a pleasure!
