Doris Roberts, the actress who played the endlessly meddling but loving mother of Raymond Barone from “Everybody Loves Raymond”, has passed away yesterday at the age of 90 in Los Angeles.
According to USA Today, Roberts’ son Michael Cannata confirmed that his mother “died peacefully in her sleep of natural causes.”
Throughout her acting career Roberts won five Emmy Awards where four of them was for her role in “Everybody Loves Raymond”.
Ray Romano who played Roberts’ on-screen son which is the titular character of “Everybody Loves Raymond” said in a statement;
“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.”
Besides her son, Roberts is survived by her daughter-in-law, Jane and three grandchildren, Kelsey, Andrew and Devon Cannata.
