Actress Betty White has died at age 99. Tributes are pouring in on social media, from all kinds of actors and actresses who worked with her and admired her.

TMZ first reported that law enforcement sources told them White died at her home Friday morning. Her agent confirmed her death to People magazine.

She would have turned 100 on Jan. 17. People profiled her secrets to a happy life. 

Her witty style gave life to a roster of quirky characters over more than a half-century. She had prominent roles in the Mary Tyler Moore Show, Hot in Cleveland, and The Golden Girls. She also drew laughs in the 2009 comedy “The Proposal” and the horror spoof “Lake Placid.” 

White once said her character Sue Ann Nivens in “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” could be “icky-sweet” but was “really a piranha type.” That role brought her two Emmys. 

In total, she was honored with eight Emmy Awards.
