‘Everybody Loves Raymond’ Actress Doris Roberts’ Final Years
Doris Roberts had a reputation as one of America's favorite TV moms, mostly due to her impressive work on "Everybody Loves Raymond." Her death sparked mourning by friends, family, and fans across the globe.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Roberts' April 2016, death was as a result of natural causes. Her family confirmed in a statement that the actress, 90, died peacefully in her sleep.
As Roberts approached her final years, she reportedly mentioned being at an age where she had very little to do besides hanging out with her grandchildren. She even mentioned wanting to take them to see "The Lion King."
It was not surprising that after the run of "Everybody Loves Raymond," Roberts continued to be a welcome face
For fun, Roberts would "go on a ramble" with friends. For most of her life, she lived by a schedule, so rambling was a rare treat that allowed her to be free and do whatever she wanted – choosing where to go or stay.
For over sixty years, Roberts appeared in several TV shows and movies while she was active in show business. She had a recurring role on the 1980s TV series "Remington Steele" playing Mildred Krebs, the secretary to Pierce Brosnan's title character.
Following the exit of "Everybody Loves Raymond" in 2005, Roberts kept working as an actress, starring in tons of TV series and plays, up until 2016.
Among her recent TV credits are "Grey's Anatomy," "The King of Queens," "Desperate Housewives," "Law & Order: SVU," and "The Middle." She also appeared in Tyler Perry's 2012 film "Madea's Witness Protection."
Roberts' decades-long career included 11 Emmy nominations. In 1983, she took home the coveted award for her best supporting actress role in "St. Elsewhere," and four more times for best-supporting actress in a comedy in "Everybody Loves Raymond."
Roberts' depiction of Marie Barone on the long-running CBS sitcom endeared her to many fans, and years after the show's nine seasons ended, Roberts continued to be regarded as one of the most iconic TV moms. Her death also hasn't done anything to the stellar reputation.
It was not surprising that after the run of "Everybody Loves Raymond," Roberts continued to be a welcome face on films and TV shows. In 2003, she was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Roberts is survived by her only son, Michael Cannata Jr., her daughter-in-law, Jane, and three grandchildren, Kelsey, Andrew, and Devon Cannata.
