Everyone say it together now: 2016 sucked. We didn't lose too many more celebrities than in previous years, but the caliber of celebrity we lost...it was terrible. We started the year with losing #DavidBowie and #AlanRickman, and ended it with losing #CarrieFisher and her mom, #DebbieReynolds. 2016 just had to stick it to us one more time, when William Christopher, Father Mulcahy from M*A*S*H, went to that big Mobile Army Surgical Hospital in the sky.

I'd say it's good to get started on a new year, but I'll hold out on any celebration until 2017 has proven it's not going to sit down on the couch with us while we're watching our 2016 highlight reel, then start laughing and say, “Here, hold my beer.”
But who is one tough old broad who made it through 94 years on this earth, one who looked 2016 squarely in the eye and told it to f*ck off? #BettyWhite, that's who! She laughs at your Go Fund Me campaigns to protect her, because she can do it herself, thank you very much.
Let's celebrate the woman's awesomeness by looking at some of the highlights of her life, both onscreen and off.
Remember that time…
