Doris Roberts, the Emmy Award-winning actress from "Everyone Love Raymond," died in Los Angeles on Sunday at 90.

Roberts won four Emmys playing Marie Barone, the mother to Ray Romano's character on the hit television sitcom. She won her first Emmy Award for a guest appearance in 1982 on the television series "St. Elsewhere," noted Us Weekly.

"We last saw her about a month ago where we frequently got her – going to the movies at the ArcLight in Hollywood," noted TMZ. "Doris said she wasn't feeling great, but she was as witty as ever.

Romano, who is currently starring in the HBO series "Vinyl," expressed his sympathies in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter on Monday.

"Doris Roberts had an energy and a spirit that amazed me," Romano said. "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."

"Everybody Loves Raymond" creator Phil Rosenthal and co-star Patricia Heaton shared their condolences on Twitter.


Born in St. Louis and raised in New York City, Roberts broke into show business in the 1955 Broadway play "The Time of Your Life," said The Hollywood Reporter.

Roberts made numerous movie appearances, including "Something Wild" in 1961, "Barefoot in the Park" in 1967, "The Heartbreak Kid" in 1972, "The Rose" in 1979, "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" in 1989, and "Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star" in 2003.

Other celebrities shared their condolences on social media.
