American actress, comedian, and animal lover, Betty White died of a stroke last year in December in her Los Angeles home, early on New Year's Eve, as per CNN. With a television career spanning almost seven decades, she was one of the first few women to work in front of and behind the camera successfully.

In the 99 years of her life, White shared in her interviews, that the best thing that happened to her in her personal life was her marriage to her husband of 18 years, Allen Ludden, a game show host. In 1945, she first got married to U.S. army pilot Dick Barker. After the couple separated, she got hitched to Hollywood agent Lane Allen in 1947 but went on to get divorced in 1949. In a way, taking a step back from her second marriage was a good decision, not only because it led her to her real love, but also because being with him could have kept her from advancing in her career, reported Country Living
