Rest in Peace Mary Tyler Moore

Sad News

Yesterday a star left the earth to shine in the heavens. Mary Tyler Moore passed away at the age of 80. We have seen her on The Dick Van Dyke Show - she's awesome as Laura. We can clearly hear her, "Oh, Rob!" in a great range of emotions. And the Mary Tyler Moore Show...the way Mary Richards' character grows...just awesome! We've also seen A Change of Habit with Elvis. And Xyra saw Ordinary People

Thank you for sharing your talent with us. You will be missed by many!

Much love,


  1. I was sad when I heard the news. She did so many different things in her career and did them all well. My favorite Dick Van Dyke episode is when she got her toe stuck in the bathtub faucet, a classic.

  2. *From Sharry, (Julie's doll mom):*

    Julie and I love watching Dick Van Dyke and the Mary Tyler Moore show. (and to Julie it's the 70s so she is still alive). But for me as a child, I saw Mary as a role model; a single working woman living on her own. That was a very big deal in the 70s w/ all the housewives on TV and Women's Lib. I dreamed of having a groovy apartment like hers and living in a building w/ many friends. RIP Mary and thanks!

    1. There was a poll on the MSN home page recently asking how you knew Mary. Only "or" choices. Like you I grew up watching both the TV shows so I didn't answer the poll.

      I liked her first apartment with Phyllis and Rhoda more than the later one. Both my parents worked so Mary Richards as a career woman rang true to me.
