RIP Mary Tyler Moore

She could turn the world on with her smile.....

Actress Mary Tyler Moore, whose eponymous 1970s series helped usher in a new era for women on television, died Wednesday at the age of 80, her longtime representative Mara Buxbaum said.
"Today beloved icon Mary Tyler Moore passed away at the age of 80 in the company of friends and her loving husband of over 33 years, Dr. S. Robert Levine," she said. "A groundbreaking actress, producer, and passionate advocate for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Mary will be remembered as a fearless visionary who turned the world on with her smile."
"The Mary Tyler Moore Show" debuted in 1970 and starred the actress as Mary Richards, a single 30-something career woman at a Minneapolis TV station. The series was hailed by feminists and fans alike as the first modern woman's sitcom.

But that wasn't the role which catapulted her into stardom.

Moore first found fame playing Laura Petrie, the wife on the "The Dick Van Dyke Show," which ran for five seasons beginning in 1961.


She was on our family TV many times... Rest in Peace Mary. ;egl;

Apparently she had suffered with diabetes related illnesses and was on life support for the last few weeks, so this was to be expected. Its sad that the news media does not share this as readily as they share death notifications.

I am surprised she lived so long given her condition, having said that, it makes me very sad anyway, I did like her as a person and actress :cry:
