Doris Roberts has passed at age 90 …
“Everybody Loves Raymond” mom, Doris Roberts has passed away at the age of 90. Best known for her role as the beloved and meddlesome mom, Marie Barone, on the sit-com Everybody Loves Raymond died in her sleep Sunday at her home in Los Angeles. The sitcom, that was one of my all-time favorites, aired from 1996 to 2005, also starred Ray Romano, Brad Garrett and Patricia Heaton. Peter Boyle, who played husband Frank Barone opposite Roberts, died in 2006. Roberts was born Nov. 4, 1925, in St. Louis and grew up in New York. The actress began her stage career on Broadway in the 1950s, amassing credits that eventually included Neil Simon’s “The Last of the Red Hot Lovers” and Terrence McNally’s “Bad Habits.”
A fond farewell to one of the funniest actresses ever.
Doris Roberts (1925–2016), Rest in Peace
