The world is in shock today to hear the news that Betty White (age 99) has died today on New Year’s Eve 2021. Only days before her Birthday on January 17th, which would made her 100! This news comes days later after another legend and huge pop culture icon John Madden had passed. What a way to end the year.
Betty White made a career as an actress spanning over nine decades! Starting off as a radio actress and personality, then being known as the First Lady of Gameshows, and mostly known for her own show The Betty White Show and her hilarious and loving role as Rose on Golden Girls in later years. Betty White even served as a member of the American Women’s Voluntary Services during World War II.
2021 is ending with a boom with the sad news of football legend John Madden’s passing. John Madden was a legend in the field and a household name for the sport, and one if not the most famous NFL commentators. His life spanned from April 10, 1936 – December 28, 2021, living for 85 years until his death.
The internet exploded, with social media love and appreciation for Stan Lee, who passed recently. I didn’t make a post on this the day of. Everyone knew, and I choose to celebrate his life instead of working on a post. But there is a couple of things I will quietly say.
ComicsandMemes would not of existed without him. Stan Lee inspired me to take such an interest in comics. His passion and love for comics accompanied by his comforting/charismatic personality accompanied with a fatherly unique voice made him the grandfather of many comic families.
Rest in peace Stan Lee, the world will never be the same without you. Yet he sure did change it why he was here.
