Betty White‘s official cause of death has been revealed ten days after her grievous passing.

According to the Hollywood icon’s death certificate, she died from a cerebrovascular accident or stroke, which typically occurs after a part of the brain loses some blood flow. She suffered “a mild stroke” six days before she passed away.

As REVOLT previously reported, White was found in her Los Angeles home on Dec. 31. Jeff Witjas, her agent and close friend, told People that she “passed in her sleep peacefully without pain.”

“To me, this is the most important thing and brings me comfort as her dear friend,” he said. “Anything else is private to Betty.” He also encouraged her fans to remember her legacy in the wake of her death. “The kindness, the goodness, the love of animals,” Witjas added.  “To me, it’s really just remembering the greatness of Betty White, the kindness and the laughter she has left for us with all her performances.”

Since White’s passing, many, including the late Bob Saget, honored the “Golden Girls” actress with makeshift memorials and touching tributes.

“This amazing woman was exactly who you wanted her to be…Razor-sharp wit, smart, kind, hilarious, sincere, and so full of love,” he wrote in a heartfelt message. “…She always said the love of her life was her husband, Allen Ludden, who she lost in 1981. Well, if things work out by Betty’s design— in the afterlife, they are reunited. I don’t know what happens when we die, but if Betty says you get to be with the love of your life, then I happily defer to Betty on this. My deepest condolences to her family and friends. Betty White. My God, we will miss you.

White’s hometown of Oak Park, Illinois will also pay homage to the star with the designation of “Betty White Day.”
