Terribly sad news from the world of television and entertainment yesterday.

Mary Tyler Moore, Beloved TV Actress, Dies at 80

I have fond memories of Mary Tyler Moore from the 1970s in her role as Laura Petrie on The Dick Van Dyke Show in the 1960s, but she was iconic in her role as Mary Richards, a thirty-ish single woman who worked as a local news producer in Minneapolis, on The Mary Tyler Moore Show. She had a good many other roles as well, but I also adored her appearance(s?) in Hot in Cleveland, where she was reunited with The Mary Tyler Moore Show co-stars Betty White and Valerie Harper.

I remember learning that she was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at age 30, and kept up to date with her life after the MTM Show, though it was difficult at times.

Rest In Peace, Mary. You made it, after all.
