Actress Doris Roberts, best known for playing the title character's mother in the hit sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond, passed away last night at the age of 90. The actress' son, Michael Canata, confirmed to Deadline that she died in her sleep last night from natural causes. Here's what the actress' Everybody Loves Raymond co-star Ray Romano had to say in a statement about her passing.
"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 green young comic trying to make it as an actor, she did everything with such a grand love for life and people and I will miss her dearly."
TMZ was the first to report the news Monday, writing that Roberts died Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles. Her cause of death has not yet been revealed.
Though Roberts starred in movies like "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" and "Madea's Witness Protection," she was best known for her television work. In her lifetime, Roberts won four Emmy awards for her work on "Everybody Loves Raymond" and one for "St. Elsewhere."
Roberts continued working until very close to her death, with her last credit being "The Red Maple Leaf," slated for a 2016 release.
