Early life[edit] Doris May Green was born on November 4, 1925, in St. Louis, Missouri, to a family of Russian Jewish immigrants. She was raised by her mother, Ann (née Meltzer),[1] and her maternal grandparents in The Bronx, New York, after her father, Larry Green, deserted the family.[2] Roberts' stepfather, whose surname she took as her own, was Chester H. Roberts. Chester and Roberts' mother operated the Z.L. Rosenfield Agency, a stenographic service catering to playwrights and actors.[3] Career[edit] Film and television[edit]

Roberts' acting career began in 1951 with a role on the TV series Studio One. She appeared in episodes of The Naked City (1958-1963), Way Out (1961), Ben Casey
Ben Casey
(1963), and The Defenders (1962-1963). In 1961, she made her film debut in Something Wild (1961). She appeared in such cult 1960s/1970s films as A Lovely Way to Die, No Way to Treat a Lady, The Honeymoon Killers, Such Good Friends, Little Murders, and The Taking of Pelham One Two Three. In 1978, she appeared in a film about John F. Kennedy's assassination, Ruby and Oswald, in which she played Jack Ruby's sister. She also appeared very briefly in The Rose, as the mother of the title character (played by Bette Midler).

Roberts in 1980 at the premiere of Seems Like Old Times, taken by Alan Light

In an interview with the Archive of American Television, Rue McClanahan confirmed that in 1972 she was approached by Norman Lear during the taping of an All in the Family
All in the Family
episode to be a late replacement for Roberts, who was originally intended for the role of Vivian on Maude.[4] (Roberts later guest starred in a 1976 All in the Family episode, "Edith's Night Out".) Roberts played Theresa Falco on Angie, and later appeared as Mildred Krebs on Remington Steele. After Remington Steele
Remington Steele
ended, she starred in the TV movie remake of If It's Tuesday, It Still Must Be Belgium (1987) and the National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
Christmas Vacation
(1989). She appeared on Alice, playing the mother of the title character (played by her former Broadway co-star Linda Lavin), on Barney Miller
Barney Miller
as the wife of a man who secretly went to a sex surrogate, and on Full House
Full House
as Danny Tanner's mother, Claire. She played the unhinged Flo Flotsky on four episodes of Soap; Dorelda Doremus, a faith healer, on Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman; and lonely Aunt Edna on Step by Step.

Roberts in December 2010

Roberts achieved much of her fame for her role as Marie Barone
Marie Barone
on Everybody Loves Raymond. She was reportedly one of 100 actresses considered for the role.[5] For her work on the series, she was nominated for seven Emmy Awards
Emmy Awards
(and won four times) for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. She had previously won an Emmy for a guest appearance on St. Elsewhere, playing a homeless woman, and was also once nominated for her role on Remington Steele.[6] She was nominated for appearances on Perfect Strangers and a PBS
PBS
special called The Sunset Gang. In 2003, she made a guest appearance as Gordo's grandmother in Lizzie McGuire. The same year, she received a star on the Hollywood
Hollywood
Walk of Fame. In 2006, she starred in Our House as a wealthy woman who took in homeless people into her own house, and in Grandma's Boy. In 2007, she made a guest appearance on Law & Order: Criminal Intent.[6] In 2008, she appeared in the romantic comedy Play the Game alongside Andy Griffith, who plays a lonely widowed grandfather re-entering the dating world after a 60-year hiatus. Roberts appeared in the 2009 film Aliens in the Attic, which was filmed in Auckland, New Zealand. She played George Needleman's mother in Tyler Perry's Madea's Witness Protection
Madea's Witness Protection
(2012). On September 23, 2010, she played Ms. Rinsky, Brick Heck's teacher in the second-season premiere episode of The Middle. This appearance reunited her with Patricia Heaton, her co-star from Everybody Loves Raymond. The two women's characters, of course, clash, with Heaton's Frankie Heck always managing to get pushed out of sorts into disastrous action usually resulting in some kind of public chastisement by Roberts' Rinsky, an expert at passive-aggressive manipulation. Roberts returned in two other episodes that season, "The Math Class" and the finale, "Back to Summer". Stage[edit] Roberts' stage career began in the 1950s on Broadway. She appeared in numerous Broadway shows including William Marchant's The Desk Set (with Shirley Booth), Neil Simon's The Last of the Red Hot Lovers (with James Coco
James Coco
and Linda Lavin) and Terrence McNally's Bad Habits. She starred in McNally's Unusual Acts of Devotion at the LaJolla Playhouse in June 2009.[7] Honors[edit] In May 2005, Roberts received an honorary doctorate of fine arts from the University of South Carolina.[8] She was awarded the Ellis Island Medal of Honor on May 7, 2011.[9] She was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame
Hollywood Walk of Fame
in February 2003, at 7021 Hollywood
Hollywood
Blvd.[10] Advocacy and other work[edit] On September 4, 2002, Roberts testified before a U.S. Congressional panel that age discrimination was prevalent in Hollywood.[11] She was a registered Democrat.[12] An animal rights advocate, Roberts worked with the group Puppies Behind Bars, which works with inmates in training guide dogs and assistance dogs for the physically disabled and elderly, as well as dogs trained in explosives detection to be used by law enforcement agencies.[13] She was also active with the Children with AIDS Foundation, where she served as chairwoman.[13] With Danelle Morton, Roberts wrote Are You Hungry, Dear? Life, Laughs, and Lasagna. The book was published by St. Martin's Press in 2003, and serves as a memoir as well as a collection of some of Roberts' recipes.[14][15] Personal life[edit] Roberts married Michael Cannata in 1956; they divorced in 1962. Their son, Michael Cannata, Jr. (born 1957) is her only child. She had three grandchildren: Kelsey, Andrew and Devon. Her second husband was writer William Goyen
William Goyen
and they were married from 1963 until his death from leukemia in 1983.[16] Death[edit] Roberts died in Los Angeles, California, on the morning of April 17, 2016 in her sleep following a stroke. She was 90 years old.[17][18] She had also suffered from pulmonary hypertension for many years before her death. Just a month after her death she was memorialized in New York City, where a public tribute was held at the Ambassador Theatre, where she appeared in 1972 in The Secret Affairs of Mildred Wild with Maureen Stapleton. Among the stars attending the service were Ray Romano
Ray Romano
and Patricia Heaton
Patricia Heaton
(her co-stars from Everybody Loves Raymond) and actor David Hyde Pierce. Romano said of Roberts, "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."[19] In another interview Romano jokingly responded about the kissing thing that Roberts did off-camera: "You know how great she was then!" He also added: "We had a little get together for her. She was one of a kind. She can outwork it, outdrink it, good kisser, I was joking! I appreciated her."[20] Just a month after her death he added: "Here's how good she was: She played the most intrusive, overbearing, nosy woman — always starting fights and whatnot and meddling in our business — and yet when I asked the fans who their favorite character was, all the time it was her," said Romano, "She was so good at portraying the love that was underneath."[21] She was interred at Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery
