Barbara Walters, who had not appeared in public for six years, led a more secluded existence in her later years.

The renowned “20/20” presenter, who passed away on Friday at the age of 93, hadn’t been spotted since 2016 when she went to watch “The Father” at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre in New York City on its opening night.

She had gone to a luncheon at the New York Public Library the day before. But on a Monday in July 2015, Walters’ Instagram account’s last post was a happy selfie with a follower.

Given that it was Monday, Walters thought she might be able to cheer up a fan today.

She also made an appearance at the Broadway premiere of “Gigi” in April 2015, looking vivacious in a grey suit.

The following year, Walters used Twitter to express her gratitude for her supporters’ and followers’ birthday greetings.

She wrote, “Thanks for all the lovely birthday greetings from near and far. I’m grateful to everyone who got in touch with me on my special day.

It was sent a statement from a representative for the founder of “The View” confirming that Walters died “peacefully in her home surrounded by loved ones.”

“She had no regrets about the way she lived. She paved the way for all women, not just female journalists, the statement stated.

Bob Iger, the CEO of Disney, announced the depressing news in a statement of his own.

Iger’s eulogy began, “Barbara was a true legend, a pioneer not just for women in journalism, but for journalism itself.” She was an exceptional reporter who secured many of the most significant interviews of our time, including those with leaders of state, the biggest stars, and sports legends.

For more than three decades, I had the luxury of referring to Barbara as a coworker, but even more so, I was able to refer to her as a close friend. We at The Walt Disney Company will miss her and offer Jacqueline, her daughter, our heartfelt condolences.
