According to the certificate, White suffered the stroke six days before her death. No underlying causes or conditions were listed.
“I was told that Betty passed in her sleep peacefully without pain,” the late star’s agent and close friend Jeff Witjas told Fox News Digital on Monday. “To me, that is the most important thing and brings me comfort as her dear friend.”

The document also confirmed that she was found dead in her Los Angeles home, that her death was not reported to a coroner and that there was no autopsy or biopsy performed as of Jan. 7, 2021.
White died at the age of 99 on Dec. 31.
The award-winning icon’s rep previously confirmed that she died of “natural causes.”
In a previous statement to People magazine, Witjas said: “Betty died peacefully in her sleep at her home. People are saying her death was related to getting a booster shot three days earlier, but that is not true.”

“She died of natural causes. Her death should not be politicized — that is not the life she lived,” Witjas said.
According to the outlet, a fabricated quote circulated about White’s death on social media. Additionally, the news article cited by social media users doesn’t contain the bogus quote — “Eat healthy and get all your vaccines. I just got boosted today” — or anything about vaccines.
