Funniest Role: Rose Nylund on The Golden Girls
Memorable Quote: "I can credit my folks for my genes. That said, I can't get over that at this age I don't feel this age. I'm not trying to be any younger. I'm not lying about my age. If I were lying about my age, I would say I was 89. I'm just at one of those good times in one's life. I'm at one of the high spots. I'm healthy enough to enjoy it. I'm surrounded by friends I adore. Isn't that kind of the best way to sign off?"
It's understandable if you're not down with GILFs, but White was a sight to be seen in her day. The quick witted Golden Girl was one of the few woman in television to have creative control in front and behind the camera in the '50s with her sitcom Life With Elizabeth. She had continued success on The Mary Tyler Moore Show with her man-eating Sue Ann Nivens.
