Doris Roberts will be remembered for lighting up every room she walked into with an unparalleled combination of energy, humour, warmth and even a little bit of grit.

Roberts won four Emmy Awards for her portrayal of Marie Barone on CBS’ “Everybody Loves Raymond,” and received a total of seven nods as best supporting actress for the show.
