"When we recorded her special message to fans who attended the movie, we also recorded one that we had planned to put on social media on her birthday," the post continued. "She was using the occasion of her 100th birthday to celebrate YOU - her fans. She knew how lucky she was; she felt the love, and she never took it for granted. I think it’s appropriate to post today as a thank from Betty and the animals."

The 99-year-old passed away on Friday, December 31, 2021. Her agent and dear friend, Jeff Witjas, confirmed the sad news in a statement.

"Even though Betty was about to be 100, I thought she would live forever," Witjas said of The Mary Tyler Moore Show alum. "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."
