While it has been less than three weeks since the legendary Betty White passed away, her assistant wasn't going to let what would have been her 100th birthday on Monday pass without a special celebration.

Taking to the beloved Golden Girls star's Facebook page, Kiersten shared "one of the last" photographs taken of the actress - who passed away peacefully at home in Brentwood, California, on New Year's Eve.

"Hello Everyone! It's Kiersten. Betty's assistant," she wrote alongside a picture of Betty wearing a vibrant green outfit.

"On this special day, I wanted to share this photo of Betty. It was taken on 12/20/21. I believe it's one of the last photos of her. She was radiant and beautiful and as happy as ever.

"Thanks to all of you who are doing kind things today and every day to make the world a better place," Kiersten finished.

The personal tribute wasn't the only emotional tribute shared on what would have been her 100th birthday.

Tech giant Google also celebrated the icon's birthday.

When users searched her name, the search page was showered with rose petals alongside the message "Thank you for being a friend 1922-2021."

A death certificate obtained by TMZ on January 11 listed Betty's cause of death as a "cerebrovascular accident," which is the medical term for a stroke.
