Everyone’s favourite TV mum, Doris Roberts who played the lovable and hilarious Marie Barone on Everybody Loves Raymond has sadly passed away. The 90-year-old star died peacefully in her sleep last night, due to natural causes with both her son and daughter-in-law by her side.
Ray Romano, who played her son on the sitcom for nine seasons tells People mag,“Doris Roberts 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.”
While fellow co-star Patricia Heaton took to Twitter to leave an emotional message during this trying time.
We’ll miss her witty one-liners. Thanks for the LOLS, Ma.
