The Legacy of Betty White on her 89th Birthday

Born in the small Illinois town to Horace and Tess, Betty Marion White has amassed an amazing and lengthy resume including seven Emmy awards. From 1922 to 2010 the accolades continue to pile up as AP named her Entertainer of the Year in 2010. “It’s ridiculous,” White says of the honor, in an interview from her home in Los Angeles. “They haven’t caught on to me, and I hope they never do.”

Humility and grace…White is an expert and model of both.

How does an 88 year-old actress from “The Golden Girls”, “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” win over the audiences in 2010? First, her success on the new show “Hot in Cleveland” has critics raving. Most important though, is her appearance on Saturday Night Live, a response to a Facebook petition, which was described by Entertainment Weekly as:

“Betty was funny, vulgar and totally charming.”

The feisty Sue Ann Nivens (the Happy Homemaker) from “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” to the naive and kindhearted Rose on “The Golden Girls” to appearing on game shows “I’ve Got a Secret” or “Match Game”: Betty White has done it all.

So to honor White on her birthday, I compiled a long list of clips and examples of her greatness to share with friends, to put a smile on your face or remember forgotten moments from an amazing career.
