[ # ] RIP Mary Tyler Moore
January 25th, 2017 under Obits








Mary Tyler Moore has passed away today most likely due complications of Diabetes. Her rep told The Huffington Post, “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. 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.”
That she did via two of the greatest sitcoms of all time. She became a household name when she starred as housewife Laura Petrie on The Dick Van Dyke Show from 1961-1966. Four years later, she fronted a show with her name in the title and made us love her even more as newswoman Mary Richards.
She didn’t only do comedy she starred in Ordinary People in 1980 and was honored with her only Oscar nom. Sadly, that was the same year her only child died by an accidental gun shot.
Even as the Diabetes was slowly destroying her body, she kept on acting. Her last role was on Hot in Cleveland when she reunited wither MTM co-stars in 2013.
Those are just her roles, but her legacy and laughter will live on forever. She was an inspirational woman for little girls over the last 5 decades. Any girl who watched her on MTM knew they could make it after all just like her. I know I have ever since I saw her throw her hat off for the very time back when I was just toddler.
She was the type of actress, you just wanted to know and we feel like we knew her. So her death is breaking our hearts. But keep in mind, she will live on forever with her shows and movies. In fact, you can watch The Mary Tyler Moore Show every Sunday night on Me TV (like I do) or The Dick Van Dyke Show on Cozi TV every Saturday. Or just watch them online like I will be spending the next few days doing.
