Betty White was America’s true sweetheart for decades and decades and when she passed we all felt a loss.  Who didn’t love the shows she was on or the causes she championed.  I assumed at 99, she simply passed away from old age.  It seems there was a medical reason.

Betty White died due to a stroke, this according to a death certificate obtained by TMZ.  The Golden Girls star died after suffering a “cardiovascular accident” which is the medical terminology for stroke.  This happened six days before her death.

She died on the very last day of 2021, just weeks before her 100th birthday on January 17th.  On that day we have been encouraged to give a donation to our favorite animal shelter.  For information about Charlotte Mecklenburg Animal Care and Control just go right here
