Grandmother of actress Carol Burnett. Full name Mabel Eudora White. She raised Burnett as a child and encouraged her show biz ambitions by taking her to the movies whenever she could afford it. White lived to see her granddaughter's early success but died just before Burnett's classic tv show hit the airwaves in 1967. When Burnett tugged her ear at the end of each program, she was saying "I love you" to White.
