Betty White’s assistant honored the actor Monday on what would have been her 100th birthday by sharing one of the last photos taken of her.
“On this special day, I wanted to share this photo of Betty. It was taken on 12/20/21,” White’s assistant, Kiersten, wrote on White’s Facebook. “I believe it’s one of the last photos of her. She was radiant and beautiful and as happy as ever.”
In the photograph, White can be seen sitting in a chair, smiling and wearing a green and blue blouse.

Prior to her Jan. 17 birthday, local animal welfare organizations saw an influx of donations in her honor through the “BettyWhiteChallenge,” which encourages people to donate $5 to their local animal shelters.
During her lifetime, White rescued several shelter pets and even hosted a 1970s TV show called “The Pet Set,” which featured celebrities with their pets and discussions about pet care and animal welfare.
Kiersten ended the post writing, “Thanks to all of you who are doing kind things today and every day to make the world a better place.”
