White’s close friend and longtime agent Jeff Witjas released the following statement:

“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.” 

How in the world do you distill a life like White’s? She was magical, incandescent, a professional and a friend. She will be missed so very much.
