White recently told an interviewer her advice for getting to be a ripe old age. She said to "enjoy life, accentuate the positive, not the negative. It sounds so trite, but a lot of people will pick out something to complain about, rather than say, 'Hey, that was great!' It’s not hard to find great stuff if you look." Her third husband Allen Ludden died in 1981 after their long and happy marriage.
