Doris Roberts: Everybody Loves Raymond star dies at 90
DORIS ROBERTS from “Everybody Loves Raymond” died on Sunday of natural causes. She was 90.
Doris played RAY ROMANO’s mother Marie on the show. Yesterday, he said, quote, “[She] had an energy and a spirit that amazed me. She never stopped . . .
“Whether working professionally or with her many charities, or just nurturing and mentoring a young, green comic trying to make it as an actor, she did it all with such a grand love for life and people and I will miss her dearly.”
PATRICIA HEATON also paid tribute on Twitter, calling her a “consummate professional,” who was funny, tough, and loved life.
Doris was also on “Remington Steele” in the ’80s, and a sitcom called “Angie” in the late ’70s. She won five Emmys . . . four for “Everybody Loves Raymond”. Her movie roles included “Christmas Vacation” and “Grandma’s Boy”.
