You may see an influx of Betty White memes on Monday, Jan. 17: The Golden Girls star would have turned 100 on Monday. But in a tragic day for TV buffs, Betty died at age 99 on Dec. 31—after suffering a stroke six days prior—missing her centennial milestone by two and a half weeks. (Pity the editors of People, the magazine that sent out an issue with the cover story “Betty White Turns 100!” just days before the actress’ death.)

To mark Betty’s 100th, fans have been honoring her life in her hometown of Oak Park, Ill., and Illinois recently deemed Jan. 17 as Betty White Day, according to Chicago’s ABC 7.

And on Monday, Fathom Events will play the documentary Betty White: A Celebration in 1,500 movie theaters nationwide, per USA Today. Even better, the doc will feature a video message Betty recorded for her fans on Dec. 20.

In the meantime, we’re getting the meme party started early — check out the funny posts below!
